Cherwell Cats Protection, which covers Banbury, Bicester, Brackley and Kidlington, has teamed up with three veterinary practices in Banbury to launch a £5 cat microchipping scheme, to run throughout the month of October.

Micro chipping, which involves a small data chip being inserted under the cat’s skin, is a safe and permanent way to identify a cat. There is no minimum age to microchip a cat and unlike collars, microchips don't come off. As long as the cat's details are in the national database, owners have peace of mind knowing they are more likely to be reunited with their pet cat should it ever go missing.

Thanks to this special offer, cat owners can have their pets chipped at participating veterinary clinics for only £5 per cat compared to the usual £12 to £15 it normally costs.

The participating veterinary practices teaming up with Cherwell Cats Protection for this scheme are Hawthorne Lodge Vets, Banbury, Vets4Pets, Banbury Cross Retail Park, and West Bar Vetenary Hospital, Banbury. All chipping must be completed between October 1 - 31.

To have your cat micro chipped, please call the vets directly for an appointment, referencing Cherwell Cats Protection micro chipping scheme. Pet owners must live in postcode(s) – OX5, OX15, OX16, OX17, OX25, OX26, OX27 or NN13 to be eligible.

In addition to the October micro chipping scheme, Cherwell Cats Protection continues to operate a voucher scheme for those who need help with the cost of neutering their cats. The scheme is means-tested and is available only to those who live in the post code areas listed above.
