2016 Finishes With A Milestone

In the final few days of December 2016, the NZCAR registered its 500,000th animal onto the NZCAR. This is a huge number of animals being protected to ensure they stand the best chance of getting home.

On any given day there are between 3,000 and 4,000 listed as missing on the system, but every day we know the NZCAR is helping many of these animals get home again.

We are not resting on our laurels though. 2017 is going to see the NZCAR develop even more features to ensure it remains the absolute best repatriation system in New Zealand, if not one of the best in the world.

Unlike overseas countries where animals fall through the gaps from a plethora of databases and lost pet services, New Zealand is extremely fortunate to have one major system that links over 840 organisations and utilises a number of exclusive technologies creating a powerful and effective lost pet system.

We are also especially proud of our work alongside the SPCA and Pets on the Net, where we market under "Working Together To Get Lost Pets Home".

The other often forgotten fact is the NZCAR is a not for profit database and administered by six of the leading companion animal welfare organisations in New Zealand. Profits from the register are used to help fund companion animal charities and projects in New Zealand.

So a BIG thank you to all the pet owners supporting the NZCAR and we wish you and your pet a great 2017.

NZCAR Christmas Hours 2016

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

The staff at Animal Register wish everyone, along with their pets, a safe and happy Christmas and New Year.

  • Our office closes at 5pm Friday 23 December.
  • We reopen at  8:30 on Wednesday 28 December through to 5pm Friday 30 December 2016.
  • Our normal office hours resume on Wednesday 4 January 2017.

For lost pet support outside our office hours you can call our 0800 567873 number to speak to our on-call support staff or leave a message for them to call you back at the next opportunity.


For vets, SPCA, councils and other NZCAR implanters, we encourage you to send through any new registrations forms completed before you close for your Christmas break. The sooner we get the form, the sooner the details can be added to the database. Christmas can be a very busy time with many new pets in new homes and it is important we get animals entered onto the NZCAR as quickly as possible.
