Community dog care roadshow in Peterborough
Wood Green Animal Shelters is inviting all dog owners to attend a community dog care roadshow in Peterborough this month.
The animal welfare charity, which rehomed more than 6,300 animals last year, will hold the event at Gunthorpe Primary School, The Pentlands, Peterborough, on January 13 from 3.30pm to 5.30pm.
Staff from the Shelters will be on hand to offer microchipping for £5 which means a dog will be permanently identified should he get lost or stolen.
Dog owners can also get their pets wormed and treated for fleas for just £5.
Each dog can be given a free weight check, fitted with a free lead, collar, harness and receive free dog toys. There will also be goody bags for owners.
No appointment is needed, just drop by. Payments can only be taken in cash.
Outreach officer Hayley Hurley said: “The aim of this community roadshow is to microchip as many dogs in the local area as possible to ensure they are permanently identified. This will help to decrease the number of stray dogs brought into Wood Green that cannot be traced back to their owners.”
