Pet Exchange Register
The Pet Exchange Register (PER) is now open for enrolments. It can be accessed via the link below:
The PER is an online database that generates a unique source number for individuals or businesses advertising a dog, cat, puppy or kitten for sale or to give away in Victoria.
From 1 July, it will be an offence to advertise a dog or cat for sale or to give away unless the advertisement includes the animal’s microchip number and the source number generated by the PER.
It will improve the traceability of dogs and cats in Victoria and allow councils, RSPCA (Victoria) and Animal Welfare Victoria to more effectively monitor those acting unlawfully.
