National Pet Register

National Pet Register will be operating its lost pet recovery service over the Christmas and New Year season. We appreciate your patience during this busy time while we work at reuniting lost pets with their owners. If your enquiry relates to a lost or found pet then please contact us at any time. If your enquiry is not urgent you may prefer to get in touch with us prior to 10pm on Saturday 24 December or from 8am on Monday 26 December when your enquiry can be dealt with promptly.

Each year pounds and shelters around the country, including The Lost Dogs’ Home, receive thousands of lost dogs and cats whose chances of being reunited with their families are decreased due to missing identification or out of date contact information.

To reduce the number of lost and stray dogs and cats coming into shelters and pounds without identification, The Lost Dogs’ Home established National Pet Register.

Owned and operated by the Home, National Pet Register is Australia’s largest not-for-profit pet identification service.

A free recovery service, National Pet Register aims to reduce the number of lost and stray dogs and cats, by raising awareness amongst pet owners of the importance of pet identification.

National Pet Register is an accredited pet register holding an Australian Veterinary Accreditation.
