Contact the Microchip Database Registries

A pet’s microchip details are stored on one of six national registries for pet microchips. What registry your pet’s details are kept on depends on where your pet was microchipped. If you know your pet’s microchip number (this can be found on their microchip certificate, vaccination card or desexing certificate) simply go to www.petaddress.com.au and enter your pet’s microchip number. If the number is found on one of the registries, you will be directed to the specific registry. The relevant registry can be contacted to notify them of your lost pet and IMPORTANTLY that all your contact details are CURRENT and CORRECT. If you pet is found via its microchip number, then you will be contacted.
