Fairfield City Council is helping to keep local pets safe by offering a free microchipping day for owners.

Council is offering free microchipping for cats and dogs to the first 100 local residents who make a booking.

Mayor of Fairfield City, Frank Carbone, emphasised the importance of this service.

“Microchipping your pet dog or cat is a legal requirement under the Companion Animals Act. But it also ensures that any lost or missing pets can be easily identified and reunited with their owners,” said Mayor Carbone.

“Pets are usually an important part of local families and we know how heartbreaking it can be when they go missing. Microchipping can help them to be found when a vet, animal shelter or council scans the chip to identify owner details.

“Council encourages all residents to have their pet microchipped and registered.”
