FREE dog microchipping is being offered in West Somerset thanks to a campaign between Dogs Trust and West Somerset Council.

Dog owners are urged to take advantage of the offer as microchipping means dogs can easily be reunited with their owners.

It will become compulsory in 2016.

Dogs Trust also stresses the importance of keeping the details up to date.

Venues are: West Somerset Council Offices, Williton, November 6, 9am- 12noon; Wellington Square, Minehead, November 6, 1pm- 4pm, and Exmoor House car park, Dulverton, November 15, 10am- 3pm.
