Pet Services

At our Centre on Abbey Street we are able to offer the following pet services. Please do keep watching this page as several months throughout the year we offer further low-cost treatments, including neutering, in conjunction with local veterinary practices. We will advertise these as and when they occur.


Losing a beloved pet is a heart-breaking experience. Many animals get lost or are stolen every year so micro-chipping is the answer to ensuring your lost pet can find its way back home. At Derby & District RSPCA we provide micro-chipping services for dogs, cats, rabbits and ferrets.

Micro-chipping is a very quick procedure and involves a small injection in the scruff of the neck to insert the chip. The unique number is then registered on a national register. Any animal found straying will automatically be checked for a micro-chip when they are found by vets, dog wardens, police and animal charities. The unique number will be registered to you and your address so you will soon be reunited with your pet.  Please remember to change your telephone number or address details if these change over time - this can be done easily by a phone call or on-line.

We can now micro-chip your cat or dog for only £10 per animal. Please contact the shelter on 01332 344620 to make an appointment.

It is compulsory to micro-chip every dog in the UK by April 2016. Make sure you book your appointment!
