From the end of this month it is a legal requirement to have all dogs microchipped and their details registered on one of the four Government approved databases.
Local authorities, the Department of Agriculture Food and the Marine and the Gardaí will be responsible for enforcing the law.
Owners of dogs found without a microchip could face a fine of up to €5,000.
A Very Happy Easter to all our Volunteers, Junior Members, Care Centre Residents and Staff, School Pupils and Teachers, Sponsors and all who support Irish Therapy Dogs.
