THE Junta de Andalucia has given Motril Council six new hand held readers for reading the microchips that cats and dogs are required by law to have inserted into their bodies for identification purposes.
It appears the council requested the donation of these readers as it will assist in not only returning lost animals to their owners but will also assist in tracking down those who have abandoned their pets for some reason or other .
Assuming owners undertake chipping at the age of three months as required, it also means the council should have the ability to have a reasonably accurate idea of the number of ‘legal’ cats and dogs it has in the town although figures will be skewed by unregistered animals.
