We are currently in the process of upgrading our internal database and as a result some of our website features may be unavailable.
If you are an authorised implanter and you are trying to view your implant records some data from the 1st of March will be unavailable but all of the subscriptions that were sent to Central Animal Records have been listed on the database. Our IT team is currently linking the website to our new internal system and once this work is complete all data will be available. If you want to access this data urgently please call us on 03 9706 3187 and we will be more than happy to help you with any of your queries.
The upgrade has also created a delay in owners receiving their Identification Certificates by mail and email and this is also being prioritised.
Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused and we are working round the clock to fix the issue.
Central Animal Records is Australia's longest running and foremost nationally accredited companion animal microchip Registry. Central Animal records was the first animal microchip registry to be accredited by the Australian Veterinary Association (AVA) and Domestic Animal Registries (DAR) - the companion animal registry watchdog that ceased after State companion animal registry licensing was introduced. We are licensed by the Victorian & Queensland Governments under their respective companion animal legislations. Our goal is simple - to provide a reliable, 24 hour per day, 7 day per week animal recovery service for lost or stolen companion animals including not only dogs and cats, but also horses, birds and reptiles that will work to ensure that your microchipped pet can be returned home, from anywhere in Australia, at any time, business hours, overnight, weekends and public holidays.
Zoe joined us back in Feb 2009 and I took her down to the vet for her first check up and immunisations etc. While I was there my vet asked if I wanted to get her microchipped and I thought about it and decided to get it done. About a week later, I dropped my daughter at home after school and went to the shops. While out I got a call from my daughter saying "Zoe's not here, she's disappeared!" I told her to calm down, thinking that she was just hiding in the backyard somewhere. When I got home, after much searching, I realised that Zoe was in fact missing. While I was trying to work out what to do, the home phone rang and it was the local vet (not my usual one) asking if I had lost a puppy? They'd scanned her and found her chip and got my details! On collection, the vet advised me that two teenage girls had brought her in, saying their little brother had found her on the nature strip on his way home from school.
Thanks to the microchip and the registry we have Zoe back and now she's having a great time with us again and hanging out with our cat Belle. Sometimes they even play…..until Belle decides she's had enough, that is!
Hello, my name is Dixie and this is my story………
A very long time ago (in 2001), sometime after I was born, a young family came to my kennel in Moe Victoria and took me home. This was a bit of a surprise as I had been specially bred for my facial markings and was going to be a show dog, but my teeth weren’t quite right for a show dog. There were two young boys to play with me and we were going to have lots of fun growing up together. They were very noisy and active which suited me as I am a Fox Terrier and just love to run and play like them. One day I went to the Vet and came home later very sore and sorry for myself. I had stitches on my belly and wasn't allowed to lick myself in the area.
