Leeds City Council (and others) to micro-chip scan dead pets found on road,etc.
We love our pets, so we micro-chip them in the hope that if they are lost we can be reunited with them, or if the worst happens we will be informed. A scanner costs around £50, and if an animal is micro-chipped it takes a quick call to the micro-chip company to give them the chip number and they do the rest. You may think that Leeds City Council's cleansing department (like some others in Yorkshire) scan any dead pets that are found on the roads, but they do not, despite often telling the public that they do. In fact, even if a dead cat or dog has a collar with owner details they do not call. I am sure you will agree that this is outrageous and unacceptable. Let's let Leeds City Council know how we feel! We expect them to respect pet owners by scanning dead pets found. If Sheffield Council can do it why can't they? You can help by signing this petition, and forwarding the link to everyone you know. You can also help by phoning or emailing Leeds City Council to make a complaint about it. I have done this already but the more complaints the better. 0113 222 4405. Thank you so much.
