Dogs Trust visited Glyncoch Community Centre to offer local dog owners free advice and health checks for their dogs.
During the event, which was organised by Trivallis, 28 dogs were brought to the centre for health checks. Six dogs that did not have microchips were given them on the day.
Microchipping a dog has been required by law by Welsh Government since April 2016. If a dog isn't microchipped or registered to an approved database the owner could be given a notice and have 21 days to do so or be liable to pay a £500 fine and face potential criminal prosecution.
Jen Williams, Trivallis’ neighbourhood manager for Glyncoch, said: “The event was really successful. We had lots of happy dogs and owners and managed to give out lots of useful advice. I’m really grateful to the staff from Dogs Trust for coming along to help our customers and people in the surrounding areas.
“We are hoping to have more regular events like this in our communities. I feel like it ensures the community is a safe place to be and the dogs are as healthy as possible.”Read Happy pooches in Glyncoch after Dogs Trust visit…
