The number of registered
animals is growing every day
In order to register your pet in the WORLDPETNET database, simply register it in your country's marked animal database (local database), which is partnered with WPN.
Every local database which registers marked animals can join WPN. In order to join, simply fill out the registration form. In addition, WPN services are available to breeders, shelters and veterinarians.
Using the WORLDPETNET service is free for both animal databases and individual users.
You can only register on WORLDPETNET online. Simply fill out our short registration form.
WORLDPETNET was created to integrate all databases containing data on microchip-marked animals. We want to make animal identification easier and faster, as well as enable users to search for registered animals.
The aim of WORLDPETNET is to unify all databases around the world, which means that every database containing data on electronically-marked animals can be added.
Electronic animal marking (chipping) makes it possible to identify them. Every microchip has a unique number, which means that it is possible to look up a registered animal's data and owner in the database it is registered in.
Microchips can be used with in animal species. However, it is important to choose the right place for the chip.
Microchip implantation is a surgical procedure and should be performed by a skilled veterinarian.
Chipping is the procedure of implanting an animal with a microchip.
A microchip does not have a tracking functionality and is not a GPS device. It is a passive device without a power source and does not emit a signal.
A microchip does not function as a GPS device and cannot be used to locate an animal as it does not emit a signal.
A microchip can be read for many years after implantation. A chip's life expectancy greatly exceeds that of the animal and does not require replacing.
In order to check if an animal has been microchipped, you need to use a special microchip reader. The chip is usually located near the left side of an animal's neck. Every veterinary clinic should have a microchip reader.
Chipping is similar to an injection. If done properly, it is not painful for the animal and does not require anaesthesia.
A microchip is a passive device, which is why it should not malfunction or stop working.
A microchip is usually implanted on the left side of an animal's neck. In certain countries, it is also common practice to implant it between the scapulae.
You can register all animal species in WORLDPETNET. It all depends on what species can be registered in your country's database.
A marked animal must be registered by its owner. Some veterinarians and breeders do it themselves, but it is ultimately the responsibility of the owner to determine whether an animal has been registered and to do so if it has not.

As an owner, you can only register an animal via a local database. If you want your pet to be searchable in the WORLDPETNET register, add it to a local database that is partnered with WPN.
You cannot register marked animals on WPN on your own. If you want your pet to be added to WORLDPETNET, add it to a local database that is partnered with our global registry.
Whether it is mandatory to register marked animals depends on your country's laws. However, a responsible owner should register their pet regardless of whether it is mandatory or not. Registering microchips helps combat animal homelessness.
WORLDPETNET enables users to make two types of accounts:
A) Accounts for veterinarians, animal shelters, legal breeders and sires – WORLDPETNET USER ACCOUNT
B) Accounts for local databases of marked animals – BASE ACCOUNT
We have created several account types to make using the WPN platform easier. Particular account types offer functionalities useful for various user types.
To add a national database to WPN, you need to create a BASE ACCOUNT.
To enter your clinic's data into the WPN database, create a WORLDPETNET user account and choose the appropriate category.
To enter your shelter's data into the WPN database, create a WORLDPETNET user account and use the appropriate category.
In order to register a breeding kennel or sire, you must first create a WORLDPETNET user account and then use the appropriate option.
Accounts for these particular user types can only be created by owners or their official, authorised representatives. All data provided is verified by the WORLDPETNET administrator.
You can create any type of account and use all functionalities of the WORLDPETNET platform for free.

A microchip is not a tracking device and does not have a GPS functionality, which means that it cannot be remotely tracked.

A breeder is a member of a legal organisation which rears and breeds purebred animals in accordance with the rules of that organisation.
Electronic marking can be used for nearly all animal species – mammals, birds, fish and reptiles. It is important to choose the correct chip size for the animal.
A purebred dog or cat has a documented pedigree.
Marking animals with a microchip is the most durable, effective and completely safe method of quick and reliable identification. Every transponder (chip) has a unique number which enables instant identification of the animal and its owner, helping them reunite faster. However, it is important to remember that a chip is just a transponder with an encoded number. It is not a tracking device and contains no data about the animal or the owner! Therefore, in order to identify a chipped dog or cat, it is necessary that a microchip be registered in a national marked animal database...Read more
