Should you list your dog or cat on a privately-operated national microchip database?

The NSW Companion Animals Register is a NSW Government database, to which authorities in other states do not have access. If you are moving or travelling interstate, you may be required under another state's legislation to list your cat or dog on a privately-operated national microchip database.

In addition, if you live near a NSW state border or simply for added protection of your cat or dog if it is lost, hurt or stolen outside NSW, you may wish to list your cat or dog on a privately-operated national microchip database:

Privately-operated national microchip databases also accept other animals, such as rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs and horses, which are not covered by the NSW Companion Animals Act 1998 and cannot be listed on the NSW Companion Animals Register.

Privately-operated national microchip databases are not linked to the NSW Companion Animals Register. Whenever you are updating your contact details on the NSW Companion Animals Register, remember to advise any privately-operated national microchip databases on which your cat or dog may also be listed.
