A successful free microchipping program is set to be rolled out to Isaac coastal residents through a voucher system.

The Chip N Check program is now open to residents for eligible dog owners who live in Carmila, Clairview, Flaggy Rock, St Lawrence, Notch Point, Greenhill and Ilbilbie areas.

The program is part of the Paws-itive Blueprint for Responsible Dog Ownership to help educate dog owners in meeting their obligations.

Isaac Regional Council Mayor Anne Baker said the Chip N Check program has been a success across the region.

“We’re extremely excited in ensuring this program is available for our Isaac Coastal residents where they can have their pet chipped by visiting a supporting veterinary practice in Sarina or Rockhampton,” she said.

“I would like to extend a congratulations our local Moranbah and Clermont vets who were part of our summer rollout and for those who took advantage of this free initiative – you’re well on your way to be responsible pet owners.

“Overall, 49 dogs were microchipped, and 65 dog registrations were issued across the five clinics that took place between at Clermont, Middlemount, Dysart, Nebo and Moranbah.”

“It also means there are further 65 dogs in the community that can be returned home if found wandering through identification via microchip and dog registration if necessary.”
