Make microchips proof of animal ownership

Petition Details

As a result of the situation I find myself in, I have come to the very harsh realisation that it is very difficult to solidly prove ownership of a much loved family pet.
What I am petitioning to achieve is that the registered owner on a microchip makes that person legally responsible for the animal

Additional Information

I want the government/parliament to address this issue as in the past ten days I have found that in order to prove ownership of an animal, one has to go to great lengths.

I feel (like many) it would make more sense and be beneficial to a large proportion of the population to make it law that an animals microchip prove legal ownership.

Too many people are left devastated by the theft of a beloved pet. I feel that if the microchip is proof of ownership these sorts of situations could be solved.


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.
