Dog owners in the South Lakes can get their pets microchipped for free, a procedure that would cost £15-30 to get done by a vet.

New regulations mean that all dogs must be chipped by April 2016.

South Lakeland District Council and the Dogs Trust have teamed up to hold events across the district on the following dates and locations:

  • Thursday 18 June at Abbot Hall Park, Kendal - 10am to 2pm

  • Thursday 9 July at Berners Close car park, Grange over Sands - 10am to 2pm

  • Wednesday 29 July at North Lonsdale Show, Ulverston - all day

  • Thursday 10 September at County Show, Crooklands - all day
