The Lancashire Evening Post (13 August 2009) has run an article saying a microchipping clinic will be held in Leyland on Wednesday next week at the Civic Centre in West Paddock from 10am to 1pm.
"South Ribble residents can bring their pets to be chipped for a discounted price of £10 per dog. Microchipping involves a painless injection that takes just a few seconds and lasts up to 20 years."

There has been quite a bit of coverage in the LEP about family pet dogs reported stolen or lost in the Preston and South Ribble area lately so look after your dog, even if it's in the garden, and think about getting it chipped if you've not already done so. Unfortunately, I've not seen any subsequent coverage which suggests that any of the owners have got their dogs back.
