Pet owners can get their dogs microchipped for free, receive a free PDSA well-being check for their handsome hound, receive vouchers for eligible cats to be neutered at a later date and ask any questions they might have about their animal’s health, safety, training and behaviour.

“Working alongside other animal welfare groups is a good way for us to promote responsible pet ownership in the community,” Sharon Sealey, from the world-famous dogs’ home, said. “At Battersea, we want to reduce the number of stray dogs and help people find their dogs if they do get lost, and events like this help us do that.”

Donna Charway, of the PDSA, said: “By offering free, friendly advice and support, we can help owners make small changes that can often make a big difference to the well-being of pets.”

Wednesday’s event runs from 11am to 4pm at John Lewis Home, Purley Way, Croydon, CR0 4XJ.
