Benefits of the UK PETtrac Database, to rescue centres

Managed by AVID, MicroChip Identification Products
There are many benefits to animal rescue centres, whether you are implanting MicroChips that are registered with the PETtrac Database, re-registering pets which have now been rehomed or just need to help reunite a pet which is registered with us.

MicroChip Registration Benefits



  • Dual Registration, your rescue contact details added to registrations
    PETtrac develop new services quickly, and this was launched back in 2008 in response to rescue organisations wanting a secondary contact on the registration service. They asked and we delivered - now it is a simple click each time the registration is completed!
  • Instant, paperless registration!
    Electronic registration services is one of the biggest changes in recent years and the UK PETtrac Database has a wide range of services to help you register a MicroChip in just seconds!
  • A fast and efficient service
    Registering a pet electronically today would mean that the pet owner normally receives their paperwork within 2 days.


Re-Registration Benefits



  • Easy to complete re-registration system
    When you re-home an animal it does not need to take a long time to process a change of keeper, and we have an online system that can help you generate the paperwork in seconds. Contact us today to find out more about it - it is FREE after all on freephone 0800 652 8 977.


Standard Benefits



  • Freephone telephone numbers
    It might only seem like a little thing, but the freephone numbers mean that neither you or your pet owning clients have to pay to contact us; this is also true of charitable rescue organisations when they find stray pets.
  • www.check-a-chip.co.uk
    Again, it's a simple thing but the PETtrac Database recognised that there was a need to help people work out which UK MicroChip Database to contact, so in 2011 PETtrac launched this bespoke website to help identify with which database a MicroChip is registered.
  • The Pet Chip Update Campaign
    Helping to keep MicroChip contact information up-to-date with the pet MicroChip databases in the UK.
  • TEXTtrac - SMS based Reunification service
    Launched in 2003, SMS pet MicroChip re-unification service, TEXTtrac, sending details back to a registered handset in 15 seconds - perfect for when you are away from the office or it is difficult to write information down.
