Integrity and Security in Microchip Ownership Transfers
Shield Against Pet Theft: Registration Checks and Balances
At Peeva, we’ve implemented rigorous checks and balances for online registrations to ensure we’re not inadvertently facilitating pet theft. Consider this scenario: if someone were to steal your dog and your pet’s microchip is either clearly visible on their collar or scanned outside of our network, would it be fair to you if we allowed just anyone to register your pet with our service without verifying their ownership? Absolutely not!
Peeva’s commitment to pet safety is unwavering. When any pet owner registers their pet’s microchip with Peeva, they receive instant notifications with precise location details the moment their pet is scanned by any veterinary professional, shelter, or rescue organization within our extensive US and Canadian network. Rest assured, we’ve got your pet’s back.
Pet Owner Confidentiality
At Peeva, we understand that as pet owners, you may have concerns about how we manage the vast amount of data related to your pets. We want to provide you with a clear understanding of our practices and how we handle this information. Through collaborations with reputable organizations in the pet and technology sectors, as well as high-volume hospitals, we’ve developed a system that allows us to compile extensive datasets in a secure and permission-based solution called Peeva Fetch.
The data we collect is shared exclusively with trusted veterinary offices and accessible only through secure login accounts; it is not available to the general public. Our database is protected and can be accessed only through a private network, which is strictly limited to the web server hosting our application and our development team. Public access to this database is restricted. When data is transferred from our web server to end-users, it is always done through a secure and encrypted connection.
Pet Ownership Transfer
To transfer the ownership of a pet registered with Peeva to a new owner, please complete this form. The transfer fee is $40.
To complete the transfer, Peeva requires proof of ownership documentation to confirm your status as the new rightful owner of your pet. Proof of ownership documentation can be any of the following:
- A pet adoption agreement from your rescue or shelter organization.
- A pet license from your city or town.
- A pet rabies certificate.
- Vet records or bills that are in your name.
- Approval from the pet’s current owner.
After the transfer is successfully processed, you will receive an email confirmation. At that point, you will be able to create an account with Peeva.
*In the rare event that the previous owner contests the transfer, we will temporarily place the transfer request on hold. A member of our support team will then contact all parties involved to confirm whether the transfer can be processed.
