Our dogs and gathijos are a fundamental part of Mexican families and have become indispensable allies for people who spend long hours at home without human companions.

To give them protection, Mexico City created the Unique Registry of Companion Animals , a kind of CURP for pets .

What is the Unique Registry of Companion Animals (RUAC)?

The RUAC is a registry in which the identification information of the companion animals of the natural or legal persons of the Mexican capital can be entered. According to the CDMX government page, "the registry will be supported by all government instances that handle pet data, applying the legislation on the protection of personal data."

Why do they do that? When dogs kick after going to the bathroom, they are using the scent glands on their paws to further mark their territory.

Why remove the RUAC from your pet?

The idea of this registry is to give the residents of the capital a legal record that shows that they are the owners of their pets.

As the CDMX Secretary of the Environment explains, this tool would help you identify your tenderloin in case it gets lost, if it suffers an accident or a person mistreats it.
