Here's some background on why dog registration in the Philippines was temporarily stopped (PCCI Online Forum):
PCCI BEING SUED FOR 4.250M++
04/07/06 at 11:42:29
FOR INFORMATION OF ALL PCCI MEMBERS BOTH REGULAR AND ASSOCIATES:
Civil Case No. MC06 -2962, filed in Mandaluyong City
1. PLARIDEL Products & Services, Inc., has filed a suit against the PCCI asking for damages of Php4,250,000.00 plus cost of suit for their claim that PCCI did not impose the pre-registration requirement of microchipping as per a MOA signed by Plaridel and PCCI.
2. PLARIDEL likewise filed a TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER (TRO) to order PCCI to cease and desist from registering pure-bred dogs that are not properly identified by microchipping. Our lawyers, the Abejo and Partners Law Office, are now fighting to stop the courts' issuance of a TRO.

Please wait for an official announcement when the dog registration will resume which we hope will be very soon.
