EAST Hampshire District Council dog wardens are reminding dog owners of the importance of getting their pets microchipped so they can be reunited with their owners if they get lost.

The reminder comes after an unchipped female lurcher type dog was found near Lindford near Bordon on Christmas Day. The wardens posted a picture of her and details of where she was found on the facebook page Help Home East Hampshire Hounds.

Soon after owner Sharlyn Burrows replied: “She is mine missing since Christmas day from Kingsley been looking everywhere.”

In response the council’s welfare team based at Penns Place in Petersfield advised that the dog should be microchipped.

On their facebook page they posted: “Your dog is in the council holding kennels. The kennels can also microchip her for you.”

Anyone with concerns about animal welfare, or who thinks they have seen a stray or abandoned dog, or would like information about getting their pet microchipped can contact the team on 01730 234318 or 01730 234319.
