Microchip your dog

Most dogs must be microchipped except those classified as working dogs. All dogs that are impounded must be microchipped on release, this includes working dogs.

You also need to let us know your dog has been microchipped so we can update your dog's record.

We offer a microchipping service at our Kaikohe Service Centre or the Te Ahu Centre during normal business hours. You can book an appointment to microchip your dog by email, by phone or in person.
