Animal Welfare & Rehoming

With animal welfare at the heart of everything we do, Petlog's commitment to the welfare industry and pets is our priority. We recognise the important role that cat and dog rescue centres and shelters play in reuniting lost pets with their owners and the re-homing process. 

As the UK's largest database for microchipped pets, Petlog ensures its Welfare Partners (e.g. animal rescue centres and dog and cat shelters) are offered the best possible service - adding peace of mind and the most cost effective package available.

Rehoming Service (Free Transfer of Keepership for Welfare)

Petlog recognises the important role that cat and dog rescue centres and shelters play in reuniting lost pets with their owners and the re-homing process.  So we have developed additional online services which allows welfare to take keepership pets coming into the centre and our Rehoming Service which allows you to rehome pets into the new keeper’s name free of charge.
