Welcome to Central Animal Records

Returning Lost Pets Home


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.

Central Animal Records Security Update Regarding Heartbleed

At this point you've probably already heard about the Heartbleed vulnerability plaguing almost every service provider on the Internet.
We wanted to take a moment and reassure our customers that following the disclosure on Monday we took immediate actions to secure Central Animal Records infrastructure against Heartbleed.
Although we have no reason to believe that any part of our service has been compromised, as a matter of best practice we would like to recommend that all our customers reset their passwords when you next logon.
If you have any security related questions, please feel free to email us at info@car.com.au
Best Regards

The Dodger.... not so Artful after all !!

Dear Central Animal Records,
I am very happy to advise that Dodger has been found!
He wandered into a Council stray cat trap (not so Artful since he easily fell into a trap)! He was no doubt drawn in by the food and spent the night there. The trapped cat(s) were sent to the animal welfare shelter and, at around 5pm, I was called and advised that Dodger was there – safe and sound.

A Much Appreciated Thank You Message from Wendy!

I would just like to acknowledge and thank you for the following:
 1. Your staff member Katie for being so helpful and responsive. She went beyond her duty and found out that my second dog was registered on another registry and gave me their number to check with them….I have also had similar excellent service  from CAR in the past when I have needed to update my details.
2. The new email sent on the anniversary of pet registration with CAR that reminds people to ensure their records are accurate – what a good idea and it reminds everyone to ensure that their details are up to date  - what a good idea – so thankyou for that as generally it is like a “set and forget” thing.
I have made a donation to your organisation and included a photo of Reggie.

Kind regards
