Add a pet: if you have a cat, bird or other pet (other than a dog) that you want to register in Fido's Standard Registry.
View/Edit: if you already have a pet (other than a recently registered dog) in Fido's Standard Registry and want to view or edit the information.
If you have a dog in Fido's Standard Registry (i.e. it was registered before the introduction of the new Regulations) then you
will be offered the option to review the information and request an official Certificate of Registration.
This will be offered at a discount rate, and once certified, your dog's details will be transferred to the Certified Registry.
Why are dogs no longer accepted in the Standard Registry?
New regulations mean that all dogs must now be recorded on a Government-approved Certified Database,
with the aid of a registrar (usually a vet) and an official printed certificate sent to the owner by post.
The new regulations also require additional information about the dog be collected,
that certain information cannot be changed (even by the owner) except with the assistance of a registrar,
and that certain actions (such as transfer of ownership) cannot take place without the paperwork from the database provider.
Fido's Certified Microchip Registry is a Government-approved Database for the purpose of dog microchip registration.
Because of the legal status of Fido's Certified Registry, it is required to operate under completely different rules,
which are unlike the more relaxed operation of the Standard Registry.
Fido's Standard Registry is suitable for cats, birds and other pets and allows you to edit more information whenever you want.
It also has a simple free ownership transfer process.
So, if you are registering a cat, bird, ferret, rabbit or other such pet, the Standard Registry is for you.
If you are registering a dog, you should see your vet who will be the registrar to get your dog onto Fido's Certified Registry.
If in doubt, ask your vet.
