Petition Action

Create a single national Defra microchip database

Petition Details

Currently, there are 12 separate, DEFRA approved microchip databases in which owners can register their pet's microchip to, we urgently need the government to bring together these databases into a single one that holds the microchip details of all pets.

Additional Information

This would make it much easier for vets, rescue centres & dog wardens to gain the relevant information and would cause less confusion for pet owners. In addition to this, it really could mean the difference between a pet being reunited or rehomed and could save the relevant organisations valuable time in reuniting pets with their owners.


If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
