The easiest way to change your contact details is to search Pet Address using your pet’s microchip number. Pet Address will redirect you to the database that lists your pet’s microchip number so that you may contact them directly. Some registries provide Change of Address forms on their websites.
If you cannot find your pet’s registry by searching on Pet Address please contact your vet or microchip implanter to find out which database your pet is listed in.If you are in NSW and cannot find your pet’s registry on Pet Address try contacting the NSW registry – the NSW Companion Animal Registry. If you are in SA and cannot find your pet’s registry on Pet Address try contacting the SA registry – Dogs and Cats Online.
Currently there are 5 private microchip registries and 2 state government registries (SA and NSW):
- Australasian Animal Registry
- Central Animal Records
- Global Micro
- NSW Government registry – the NSW Companion Animal Registry
- SA Government registry – Dogs and Cats Online (DACO)
All Greyhound Racing Victoria (GRV)-registered greyhounds are microchipped and registered on the GRV Microchip Registry as puppies, and this includes both racing greyhounds in the care of GRV registered participants, and retired greyhounds that have been re-homed into the community. GRV does not subscribe to Pet Address at this time and so, if the microchip number you are looking for belongs to a greyhound, and the number is not listed on any of the Pet Address affiliated microchip registries please check the GRV Microchip Registry.
