Register Pet Microchip
Registering your pet with Microchip Central will not only make you compliant with UK law, but is one of the quickest as safest ways of reuniting you with your pet.
Is your pet's microchip already registered? Check here:
My pet is microchipped and registered on the Microchip Central database to the previous keeper. I need to change the registered keeper.
You can either:
Ask the previous keeper to initiate the transfer of keepership. They will need your email address and contact number to start the transfer of keepership from within their Microchip Central account. You will receive an email and text with a unique link allowing you to accept the change of keepership of the pets microchip registration. If you do not have a Microchip Central account, you will be prompted to create one to accept the transfer. Note the transfer link will only be valid for 7 days for security reasons.
Click here to create an account and then enter the pets microchip number and date of birth to change the microchip registration into your details. Note the previous keeper will be notified that the pets microchip registration has been transferred into your keepership.

My pet is microchipped and not registered on the Microchip Central database.
To register your pet you will need to create an account, or sign in if you already have an account and click Add Pet.
If your pets microchips are registered with a different microchip database and you wish to move them to the Microchip Central database, simply create an account by clicking the above link. After you have added your pets, you can then request your data is removed from the databases you were previously registered with. This is great for consolidating your pet registrations, minimising potential fees and saving you time in the future i.e. to update details.
Why do we require an email address? [+]
We use email to verify the creation of accounts and gain consent for the processing of data. For example, sharing your contact details to help reunite you with your pet should it stray. We gain this consent to comply with the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) which were enforced on 25th May 2018. By providing an email address or mobile number you will be able to activate your account and set a secure password which will enable you to access and manage your registration online.
