Microchipping Roadshow! Get Your Pet Microchipped!

We are delighted to announce that we will partner with Maxi Zoo with our Microchipping Road Show!

We will be travelling around various Dublin Maxi Zoo stores in September & October to make sure our four legged furry friends are safely registered!

If you would like to get you pet registered for a microchip, simply fill out the form below stating which store and date you would like to attend;

The cost of the microchipping service on the day is €20.00.

Please note, Pre-registration for Finglas on September 23rd has now closed. We may have a small capacity for walk ups on the day, but we are very near capacity.

Do I need to microchip my pet?

Yes you should definitely microchip your pet. Did you know that it is now a legal requirement for all dogs to be microchipped? It is also a requirement if you wish to avail of our charitable services.

If your pet goes missing the microchip number will allow a vet or pound find your contact information to reunite you with your pet. Having the correct and up to date contact details registered is extremely important in case your pet wanders or gets lost. Always remember to update your details if you change phone number or address. Your vet will advise you how to do this.

Does a microchip track my pet’s location?

No a microchip will not track your pet’s location. If your pet is found the microchip will allow a veterinary clinic or dog pound to access your contact details to let you know that your pet has been found.

Thousands of dogs go missing in Ireland each year, and sadly, many are not reunited with their owners. So please do not hesitate in microchipping your pet!

Here is a great story on how a dog was reunited with their owner two years after they were stolen, thanks to a microchip!
