ANIS Registration

ANIS Registration of Cats in Switzerland: A Comprehensive Guide

.html5-video-container video::-webkit-media-controls { display: none !important; }
As a responsible cat owner, it is crucial to ensure the safety and well-being of your feline companion. One of the ways to do this is by registering your cat with ANIS (Animal Identity Service), a mandatory registration system in Switzerland for all cats. In this article, we will explore the advantages of ANIS registration, the requirements for registration, and the deadlines to ensure compliance.

Advantages of ANIS Registration

ANIS registration provides several advantages for both cats and their owners

  1. Firstly, the registration process includes microchipping your pet. It is a small and painless procedure. The microchip contains a unique identification number, which is linked to your contact information in the ANIS database. In this case any veterinary clinic or animal shelter can easily contact you and reunite you with your beloved pet.
  2. Secondly, ANIS registration is essential for controlling the feline population in Switzerland. This, in turn, reduces the number of stray animals in the country, which can cause several problems, including the spread of diseases and the destruction of natural habitats.
  3. Finally, ANIS registration is mandatory in Switzerland, and failure to comply can result in fines and legal action. This ensures that all cats in the country are identified and registered, which contributes to the overall safety and well-being of felines and their owners.

Requirements for Registration

To register your cat with ANIS, you will need to fulfill certain requirements:

  • a cat must be microchipped by a qualified veterinarian. The microchip must meet ISO standards and be readable by ANIS scanners;
  • provide your contact information, including your name, address, and phone number, to ANIS. This information will be linked to your info history in the ANIS database.

Deadlines for Registration

ANIS registration is mandatory for all cats in Switzerland, and there are strict deadlines for compliance.

Kittens must be registered within six months of birth or before they are sold or given away. Adult cats must be registered within ten days of acquisition, which includes adoption, purchase, or gift.
