The Govt vet office in Paphos can be found by two ways.

Travel along the main road up past Paps and Carrefour. Just past Carrefour there is a paint shop, Orinos Past this paint shop there is a No entry turn, go just past this and the Veterinary Services office is just past this on the right.

Or, come off the motorway, take the dual carriageway, go past the fountain to the junction with Messogi Ave (Polis Road), take the left filter and it's just along on the left.

Dunnoo where the Mukhtar's office in Geroskipou though!

Thanx for the info. I will definitely go this route, I would be devastated if my boy ran off and got lost.

The procedure is to take your pet passport(as you will already have one) to the local Government Veterinary department to have it registered free, on their computer as the microchip number needs to be recorded should your dog ever get lost. People fail to do this and so when we get animals which are micro chipped or tattooed, if not recorded at the Government Vet Dept, you will not be reunited with your animal and it could be euthanized or rehomed.
They will issue you a paper and you take this paper to your local Municipality(Council Office).This then costs you 20 euros to purchase a yearly licence for your dog. I would ask you to enquire where this money goes to and if they have a dog pound which by law they should have. Please do not believe all you are told and check on any information you are given, as I have seen too many lovely animals who have microchips,not been re united,and killed.
If the person at the shelter has time and the Government have time to check on vet batches of microchip numbers;can the chances be made better.but highly unlikely. Coming from abroad do not think automatically your micro chip details are put into the system!
I must emphasize that the law is 15 days from when a lost dog is taken by the authorities when it will be killed unless it is lucky to go to the few shelters which offer a No Kill policy. These places are already over full and volunteers desperately needed.
Also keep a note of an ever growing website Pets2adopt which lists missing/lost /found dogs and help them to build a central website in order to make people happy to have their dog back.They all work incredibly hard doing the job which the Government should be helping with.
Good Luck with your move.
