The Australasian Animal Registry (AAR) was established in 1989 and is the largest not-for-profit and most comprehensive animal registration and recovery service in Australasia.
AAR is a division of the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW (RAS).
The RAS is responsible for organising and staging the Sydney Royal Easter Show, managing Sydney Showground at Sydney Olympic Park and organising the Sydney Royal Wine, Dairy and Fine Food Shows.
AAR operates Australia wide and is an authorised registry for VIC & QLD. As at 30 June 2008, AAR maintains records for over 1 million animals from across Australia and New Zealand. This includes dogs, cats, birds, horses, zoo animals and even ferrets.
Regarded by many as the most reliable animal microchip database across Australasia, AAR provides an accurate and independent service designed to assist in the speedy recovery of registered animals.
