It is very important to keep your contact details up to date on the database so that if you move house or change your phone number you will still be contactable in the event of your pet becoming lost/stray.
Ideally your pet cat or dog should be microchipped prior to you purchasing or adopting your pet.
Without your information, we may not be able to provide you with the requested services or products, or with information about campaigns, activities, products and services that you may be interested in.
These details are kept alongside the microchip number on a database, so that your dog can be returned to you if it’s lost or stolen.
You must make sure that your dog is registered on one of the following government-approved databases: Your dog must still wear a collar and tag with your name and address when in a public place.
With the Pet Chip Registry, busy veterinarians and shelters can visit the National Online Search Engine and simply enter the microchip number.
When the microchip number is entered, the name of the owner, with a photo of the pet, as well as four different forms of contact for the current registered owner, will instantly display on the screen.
Pet Chip Registry is the National Pet Microchip Registration Database and is accessible to all veterinarians, animal shelters and rescue groups.
This national database registers and displays contact information for all brands and frequencies of pet microchips.The chip itself is very small – about the size of a grain of rice – and is implanted just under the skin, between the shoulder blades at the back of your pet's neck.Each chip has a unique number that is detected using a microchip scanner.We believe in the power of the internet in order to return pets to the families who care for them.Our job is to monitor, correct, change, update, protect and maintain your contact information while keeping it accessible.The microchip number is recorded on a database registry with details about the animal and owner.
