Microchip
Search

What to do:

If the pet has a collar tag with owner information, please contact them directly.

If there is no collar tag, but you have access to a scanner and locate a microchip, please enter the number in the lookup tool above, to find out which database it is registered to.

Found a dog?

Please adhere to these additional guidelines

Locate the microchip

If you do not know if the dog is micro chipped, check here to find your local ScanAngel.

They will scan the dog and, if they locate a microchip, they can check which database it is registered to and initiate the process of reuniting the animal with its owner.

Stray Dog Law

The law states that lost dogs must be reported to the local authority if the owners cannot be contacted. You only need do this if you cannot contact the owner. ScanAngels will help you contact the owner. If the dog is not chipped or the owner cannot be contacted the local authority must be contacted.
