As a loving pet parent, you want the best for your furry companion. But even the most attentive pet owners can’t always be there to protect them. That’s where BC Pet Registry comes in.
Microchips, tattoos, and licenses, that are registered help decrease the length of stay for missing pets in shelters.
That’s where BC Pet Registry comes in.
The BC Pet Registry is a program of the BC SPCA.

BC Pet Registry is the only non-profit registry that is determined to achieve social change. Your support will help make a difference in the community you live in.
Microchips are the most reliable form of permanent ID for pets, when implanted properly and registered. Animals with permanent identification are reunited with their guardians in far greater numbers than animals with no identification.
Microchip implantation is comparable to a routine vaccination. There is no need for anaesthetic when implanting a microchip and the procedure is over in minutes! Are you interested in getting a microchip for your pet? Make an appointment with one of our BC SPCA hospitals or ask your local vet about BC Pet Registry!
A microchip is not a GPS or tracking device. Microchips use Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology which is only activated with the use of a microchip scanner. They do not require batteries like a GPS and last the lifetime of the animal.
All microchips registered with the BC Pet Registry are traceable internationally via the American Animal Hospital Association’s (AAHA) universal pet microchip lookup, petmicrochiplookup.org. This partnership means that you can travel with your pet with confidence that you’re protected!
The BC Pet Registry uses International Standards Organization (ISO) microchip technology, which is recommended by the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA).
