DSPCA Special Free dog Microhipping Event

Sponsored by Allianz Pet Insurance

DSPCA welcome the announcement by the Minister for Agriculture Simon Coveney of legislation to introduce compulsory microchipping of all dogs.  The DSPCA is Ireland’s largest and oldest animal welfare charity, working with dogs and other animals since 1840.   It operates “Pettrace” in Ireland which is part of Europet.net – Europe’s largest animal microchip database with over 54 million animals registered across Europe.  DSPCA’s Pettrace is on call 24/7 at 01 087 908 5422 and your animal can be traced across Europe .

The DSPCA announces the running of a Free dog microchipping event sponsored by Allianz Pet Insurance in their centre in Rathfarnham on Saturday 6th April from 10.00am until 5.00pm. 

Included in the special package is:

  • Implantation of the michrochip
  • Registration onto the Pettrace and Europet.net databases
  • A new collar tag for your dog with the Pettrace contact details and a unique code
  • Microchip certificate

If you are interested in getting your dog microchipped please email info@dspca.ie and we will make an appointment for you.  We will need your name, address, details of your dog (only one dog per person please), email and contact number.

The DSPCA has been pushing for the compulsory micrchipping of dogs in Ireland for over a decade when it started to microchip dogs leaving its centre.  The DSPCA sees this as a significant step in the prevention of many issues surrounding dog welfare including dog trafficking, owners traceability and accountability for the thousands of sick, injured and cruelly treated dogs which the charity deals with each year.
