Updating your contact details
You can update your contact details online, by email, or by calling 0800 LOSTPET during office hours.
If you are the primary contact person listed on our database, and your email address is registered with us, you can update contact details online anytime. You can change any contact information, plus your pet's name, its desex status, and local authority. If your pet has a new microchip number, just ask the implanting vet/spca clinic to notify us in writing.
If your pet is missing, you can use the same process to activate the Scanner Angel tag.
If you have adopted a pet that is registered on our database to someone else, the contact details cannot be changed without the primary contacts permission. Please ask them to update the details to yourself or they can contact us directly to do this for them. Click here for futher information.

If you can not update online you can contact the NZCAR team by email, or by phone. Updates are only completed during office hours (Monday to Friday 08:30am - 5pm excluding holidays) unless it is an emergency and your pet has gone missing.
If your email address has changed, please contact us to update this for you so you can continue to access your pets details online.
