My welfare/rescue does not meet the criteria

Regretfully, we are no longer be able to accept microchip registrations or rehome requests via email or on paper via the post.

Here at Petlog we understand how important microchipping database services are to rescue organisations involved in rehoming pets.

Currently, we have over 1,600 active welfare accounts accessing Petlog services via our website. However, if your organisation is unable to meet our welfare partner criteria, then a Transfer of Keepership will need to be done by the new keeper. They can do this via our website.

Alternatively, if you have a keeper account with us, you can advise us of the new keeper’s details and we will contact them to confirm the Transfer of Keepership.
