Microchipping Your Pet

Maximise your chances of being reunited with your pet during or after a disaster, or at any time…

Get your pet microchipped and registered on the New Zealand Companion Animal Register (NZCAR).

It is vitally important that you microchip your pet to help safeguard against losing your beloved companion forever.

Microchipping Facts:

Over 80 per cent of animals that were microchipped were successfully reunited with their owners following the Christchurch earthquake
Microchipping does not hurt nor harm your pet’s health
The microchip is approximately the size of a grain of rice
Each chip has a number and when an animal is microchipped, the owner’s details are recorded against that number onto the NZCAR database.
Vet clinics and SPCAs have access to the New Zealand Companion Animal Register
If your animal is lost and taken into a vet clinic or SPCA, it can be reunited with you within just minutes or hours of it being found
Microchipping can be used as legal identification if an animal’s ownership is in dispute
Microchipping can help with legal identification in case your animal is stolen
Animal microchips do not include GPS (Global Positioning System)

Tip:
Once your pet is registered with the NZ Companion Animal Register, please make sure to update your details if you move. Simply visit www.animalregister.co.nz and update your information online.

When you register your dog the microchip data is logged on the NZ Dog Database (Council Database).  We recommend that you also register your pet on the NZ Companion Animal.  This ensures that vets and the SPCA also has access to your pets details should your pet be injured or lost.  Your pet can be registered on the  NZ Companion Animal Register by the North Taranaki SPCA or your vet.

The cost of microchipping at North Taranaki SPCA is $40.
