Central Coast Council is inviting dog and cat owners to take advantage of a free microchipping day on 15 February.

Residents are encouraged to bring their furry friend to one of the Central Coast Animal Care Facilities at Charmhaven and Erina, to have them microchipped at no cost.

Mayor Lisa Matthews said local pet owners are encouraged to take up the service.

"Taking care of a pet is a big responsibility and getting them microchipped and registered with Council is an important first step," Mayor Matthews said.

"Domestic pets bring much joy to our lives and having them microchipped could prove crucial in identifying them if they did happen to get lost. It's a legislative requirement in NSW to have your pet microchipped.

"Our Animal Care facilities often register a spike in lost pets over the summer, but fortunately there are often happy reunions due to a microchip being in place."

Council's Free Microchipping Day will be held at Council's Animal Care Facility in Charmhaven and Erina, on Saturday 15 February from 10am to 3pm.
