DEFRA: We are launching this consultation to seek your views on proposals to make cat microchipping a compulsory requirement of cat ownership in England. We are also taking this opportunity to consult on the compulsory scanning of pets (dogs and cats) for microchips.
The Government want to hear from you.
Government Online Consultation for dog and cat Microchipping and Scanning: Responses should be received by 17 February 2021.
It’s compulsory to microchip our dogs but there is no legal obligation to scan and check microchip registration leaving huge loopholes for our dogs and cats to disappear into.
