Hi Marie, can I ask why you don't microchip please hun?

Edited to add is ther not somewhere or someone local to you that could do it at cost for you as a rescue? At least you know you can always keep track of the dog. I apologise if you have already looked into it.

Thanks for your message about microchipping. I am not sure why we don't microchip but I will ask Ros and then update this thread. One of our volunteers is trained to do microchipping and also does it for Doris Banham Rescue too. She did mention that she has some of 'Ros' microchips' so I will find out if this is done now as part of the rescue package or if there is a separate payment for the service.

Thank you Marie, I wasn't having a go. It just seems that if you will take the dog back, without a chip it is difficult to keep track on where the dogs are. Thanks again for getting back to us

No problem - I understand completely the advantages of microchipping.

I have managed to find out a bit of information. We used to microchip but the volunteer who does the microchipping does not live locally to the rescue so she was only able to visit about once a month. Animal Helpline mostly rescues pound dogs so we have dogs coming and going almost on a daily basis! The administration of the whole thing became a nightmare. It became difficult to keep track of which dogs had been microchipped and which dogs weren't and the new owners didn't get in touch with our volunteer to give her their details to register the dogs who had been microchipped. So we now offer an inexpensive microchipping service at regular intervals to people who have adopted their dogs from us.
