Found a Pet?

Check a Microchip

Check a DogTrac ID Tag or Key Tag

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.

If the microchip is registered with Microchip Central and the owner has consented to their contact details being shared, you will be able to contact them directly. If not, you will need to call our 247 help line on 01223 727100 and tell us the microchip number so we can try to contact the owner.

Found a pet?

Please adhere to these additional guidelines

Locate the microchip

If you do not know if the pet is microchipped, check here to find your local ScanAngel.

They will scan the pet 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.

You can also take the pet to the nearest veterinary practice to have the microchip scanned, or call to see if a pet has been reported missing.

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.

Lost and Found Pets

What to do:

If your pet has gone missing, sign in to your microchip central account and ensure that your contact details are correct and up-to-date. Then select the Missing Pet Admin button in your pet's profile and report your pet missing.

Keep your mobile phone with you at all times in case someone finds your pet and tries to contact you.

If you don't have a MicroChip Central Account, you can create one now and report your pet missing.

If marked as 'missing', your pet's microchip number will be sent to over 10,000 Halo scanner owners in the UK Scanner Angel network. If your pet is found and scanned by a Scanner Angel it will automatically display it as missing and show MicroChip Central’s contact number.

If you think your pet has been stolen you should inform the Police immediately.

If it is searched on any other DEFRA compliant database it will list MicroChip Central as having your and your pet’s contact information.
