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.

Snip'n'Chip Campaign Launched

Wellington SPCA in partnership with Wellington City Council and with the support of NZCAR and a number of Central Wellington veterinary practices is happy to announce the launch of snip’n’chip.

This special campaign is offering Wellington cat owners heavily discounted desexing and microchipping for your favourite feline.

The aim is to provide the best possible life for their cats by reducing the number of unwanted kittens and by helping all lost cats find their way home. Owners can also receive sound advice on how pet cats and native wildlife can better share their urban and suburban surroundings.

This campaign is only available until the 15th December, so get in fast to ensure you're giving your cat the life it deserves!

THIS PROMOTION IS AVAILABLE TO WELLINGTON CITY RESIDENTS ONLY. To see the list of suburbs, and check out the participtaing vet clinics visit the SPCA page at the link below.
