LostPet.co.nz Services Summary

While the majority of services on lostpet.co.nz are free, we do offer the option to increase the chances of your pet getting home by offering additional microchip id and facial recognition services for a small fee.

These not-for-profit paid services fund the cost of providing them, as well as funding free LostPet.co.nz services. They also help fund a wide range of animal charities and projects throughout New Zealand too.

The New Zealand Companion Animal Register is committed to providing a single portal where all lost and found pets can be listed. One site that is free to use is the single best way of guaranteeing New Zealand companion animals have the best chance of getting home when lost.

  • Automatic notification to Neighbourly users in your vicinity
