Here's the latest news from SOFA (speaking Out For Animals) that intrepid and charming group of youngsters and their indefatigable teacher who are campaigning to have microchipping of dogs made a legal requirement. Seems like they are well on the way - and the best of luck to them!
If you're a UK resident please follow the link below to help support the campaign:
Thank you for your support of SOFA's microchipping campaign; we do really appreciate it.
Following our last meeting at the House of Commons we are very pleased to announce that an Early Day Motion has been tabled by MP Martin Horwood ( Cheltenham ).
We would be most grateful if you could please ask your MP to support the campaign by signing EDM 1487 as soon as possible. If we get enough MP support it will give us great progress to our aim of making microchipping mandatory.

Many thanks, in advance..
