Register your pets 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 pets microchip already registered? Check here:
My pet is already microchipped and registered with Microchip Central under the previous keeper
If your pet is already microchipped and registered on our database, you will need to ask the previous keeper to initiate the transfer of keepership. To do this you need to provide them with your emails address and contact number. As the pet is registered as their property, they are the only person who can sign in to their account and initiate the transfer.
If you cannot contact the previous keeper please contact us.
Once the transfer has been initiated, you will receive an email and text with a link to accept the transfer. If you do not have a Microchip Central account, you will be prompted to create one to accept the transfer. Note the link will only be valid for 7 days for security reasons.

To register your pet you will need to create an account or sign in if you already have an account.
If your pets are registered with a different database and you wish to move them to Microchip Central. 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? [+]
