We are database PetBase

In the past, animals were tattooed for registration – a painful practice. But then came the painless chips in 1993, and while it reduced the pain, a new problem arose: data was only available by phone during business hours. Imagine losing your animal and not being able to immediately find out where it is – unthinkable!

That is why we, at PetBase, were the first to set up an online database for animals in 1998. With our database, your animal can be traced 24/7, so that it can be safely returned to you quickly.

About PetBase

PetBase: an ISO certified family business

Today, PetBase is an ISO certified family business where, despite professionalization, customers and animals are still central! Several family members still work within the organization, but in recent years the team has been expanded with enthusiastic colleagues who do not belong to the Leemkuil family, but who now feel part of the family. The team consists of a mix of animal lovers, animal professionals and automation experts. Over the years, the PetBase registrations have been supplemented with the registrations of former databases: RCA, SRGN, VETAIR and Stichting CHIP. With that we can say that we have been registering animals together for 33 years.

Since April 1st 2013, it is required by law to microchip and register dogs. PetBase is a government-approved database for registering microchipped dogs. For more information on the compulsory identification and registration for dogs (I&R) read more here.

We do all software developments of PetBase in-house. This allows us to bring a high-quality database online. Made for the professional and very easy to operate for the owners. 


Head registrations

"The very best part of my job is reuniting lost pets with their owners. I have enjoyed doing that for more than 25 years. I come from a technical background and have always been involved in automating and improving processes. At PetBase, I put that passion to work every day and I don't consider it work. My love for animals, technology and automation come together perfectly here. Together with whole team PetBase, we make the world of pets safer and happier."

Populairste hondennamen 2023

In het jaar 2023 hebben Luna en Max zich gekroond tot de meest geliefde namen voor honden. Opvallend genoeg is Luna ook een favoriet onder katteneigenaren, samen met de naam Simba. Luna voert zowel bij vrouwtjeshonden als bij poezen de lijst aan, terwijl baasjes voor mannetjeshonden het vaakst kiezen voor de naam Max. Uit onderzoek van verzekeraar OHRA blijkt tevens dat Simba een geliefde naam is onder katers.

Het GVB, verantwoordelijk voor het stadsvervoer, verwelkomt haar als een van hun vaste reizigers en deelt in de vreugde van haar aanwezigheid.

Slapende dieren

Slapende dieren onder motorkappen

Het is iets wat veel autobezitters herkennen: katten en kleine wilde dieren die zich ’s nachts graag nestelen in de warmte van een recent gebruikte auto. Vooral tijdens koudere dagen blijkt het motorblok een aantrekkelijke slaapplek te zijn. Helaas hebben we al enkele trieste gevallen gezien van gewonde of overleden katten die uit auto’s moesten worden gehaald.
