DOG owners can come to Greenhead Park and find out about microchipping their pets.
The session with the Kirklees Dog Warden service takes place today (July 17) from 10am until 2pm.
Microchips are the size of a grain of sand and are painlessly inserted under the skin between the shoulder blades.
Each chip has a unique number and the owner’s details are stored under this number on a national data base.
This can then be read by Animal Enforcement Officers who carry scanners that read all microchips.
If a person’s dog is stolen or lost they can easily be notified if they are found and the chip provides proof of ownership.
The event is taking place at the bottom of the memorial steps close to the bowling green.
Microchipping will be available at a low cost and for free for people on low incomes or benefits.
Dog owners can also order ID tags - a legal requirement for their pet - and meet the Enforcement team and get animal care advice.
