Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council (CGRC) will be conducting a free microchipping day for cats and dogs this month.
For pet owners to take advantage of the service the council is providing it between 4pm and 7pm, so people can attend after work.
The service will be offered at Albert Park on Thursday November 26.
A council spokesperson said the procedure is simple and quick.
"It involves a small chip the size of a grain of rice being implanted between the shoulder blades," she said.
"Microchipping your pet helps keep them safe.
"It's a vital part of their care that you chip them so that if they ever wander away, their chip will reunite them with their family."
In NSW, all cats and dogs must be microchipped by 12 weeks old and be lifetime registered by 6 months of age.
