From 1 July 2018, Dogs and Cats Online will be the central database for microchipped and registered dogs and cats and registration payments. Dogs and Cats Online will also be the register of breeders. Visit dogsandcatsonline.com.au from 1 July 2018.
It will allow pet owners to better manage their own details and it will streamline dog and cat management in South Australia saving councils and ratepayers time and money.
Owners of dogs and cats that have been microchipped prior to the 1 July 2018 are responsible for ensuring their microchip information is entered into Dogs and Cats Online. Dogs (and cats where applicable) that are currently registered with their council are being transferred to the system, Dogs and Cats Online.
A Vet or microchip implanter who implants a microchip after 1 July 2018 will be required to enter the microchip information onto Dogs and Cats Online. Dogs and Cats Online will become the official record of microchipping details in SA.
A Vet who desexes a dog or cat after 1 July 2018 will be required to enter the microchip information onto Dogs and Cats Online.
