The BC SPCA Pet Registry: More Than Just a Database

As a program of the BC SPCA, the BC SPCA Pet Registry is not just a database for microchipped pets. It’s a dynamic ecosystem designed to safeguard pets through advanced technology and active community engagement with the vast network of the BC SPCA. Our mission is to create a network that not only enhances the welfare of pets but also supports pet owners throughout their journey of responsible pet ownership.

How Pet Microchip ID Works

Pet microchip ID is the cornerstone of our strategy to improve pet safety. This system is simple yet effective: a tiny chip, when scanned, reveals the identity of a pet and their owner’s contact details contained within our robust database nation-wide. This crucial technology drastically reduces the time it takes to reunite lost pets with their families, ensuring that every moment counts. Learn more about how this life-saving technology works on our How Pet Microchip Works page.

Their involvement ensures that microchipping is not just a procedure but a gateway to educating the public about its benefits, as detailed in our insights with AnimalKind in this article.

Collaborative Efforts with Educational Institutions
