If your pet was born after October 2010 it is required by law to be microchipped. Also, if a dog or cat is sold or transferred it needs to be microchipped. Make sure if your pet is microchipped that your address and phone details are up to date. We sometimes get stray animals with microchipped but still can't reach the owner.

The National Pet Register provides an Australia-wide pet identification and recovery service. The National Pet Register aims to reduce the number of lost and stray dogs, cats and other animals by issuing free individually numbered ID tags and recording microchip numbers on our national database.
