Do you live in England, Scotland or Wales? You need to have your pet microchipped. As of April 6, 2016, it is the law that dogs?must be chipped and registered by 8 weeks of age. If you are found non-compliant, you could face fines of ?500. More details here. Over one million pets to go! Hopefully, this new law will increase chances of reuniting lost dogs with their owners.
UPDATE: Cats must now be microchipped as well.
