Health check for dogs in Rush Green

Published: Wednesday, 10 May 2017

Havering’s dog owners can get their pets health checked and the animals micro-chipped at no cost during a special event being held in Rush Green.

Havering Council’s Housing Services Community Engagement team has teamed up with the Dog’s Trust to run the free event at Rush Green Gardens, Romford, RM7 0NR from 11am until 3pm on Friday 12 May.

Owners wanting their dogs neutered can make the arrangements at that event for a specially reduced fee.

The Council wants to encourage responsible dog ownership which is why we are running a series of events throughout the year.

We hope local dog owners will bring their pets along for a free health check and, if they haven’t already been micro-chipped get this done too as, since April 2016, the law has required all dogs to be micro-chipped.
