Find out about free microchipping.
A microchip carries a unique number and responds to a scanner so if your dog is lost, stolen or has escaped or strayed, it can be easily identified. All dogs registered with Southland District Council can access free microchipping. All dogs are required to be microchipped, other than dogs used mainly for herding or driving stock. Microchipping does not replace dog registration.
All dogs eligible to be registered with Southland District Council can be microchipped for free. All dogs must be registered by three months of age.
