City of Casey microchipping day

IMG_4681We often talk about the importance of microchipping your pet. Each year thousands of lost cats and dogs across Australia arrive at shelters and have no way of being reunited with their owners; either because they are not identified, or there owners contact details are out-of-date.

This Saturday the City of Casey is holding a microchipping day at The Lost Dogs’ Home’s Cranbourne Shelter. If you have been looking to microchip your pet in time for summer, this is the event for you!

Microchips cost $25 per animal.  For more information visit
