Bristol A.R.C. offers free cat microchipping to help reduce stray cat numbers in the city. Every year, over a quarter of a million animals are lost. Microchipping gives a pet the best chance of being identified and reunited with its owners. Recent RSPCA National figures revealed that 87% of cats taken into care in 2017 were not chipped – making reuniting cats with their owners almost impossible. Unlike dogs where the law states that they must be chipped, microchipping is entirely optional in cats – although highly encouraged by vets and animal charities.
To help increase the likelihood of happy family reunions, Bristol A.R.C. is launching an initiative offering free cat microchipping throughout 2018, and to try to encourage as many cat owners to take part as possible, each cat
chipped could be in with the chance of winning a goodie bag!
The free microchipping offer is open to any Bristol cat from 4 months of age. Any owners interested are invited to call 0117 9724567 to arrange a free appointment.
