MICROCHIPS FOR DOGS AND CATS

 

Six to 8 million pets enter U.S. shelters each year. Many are lost family pets. Only 3 to 4 percent of dogs, and less than 1 percent of cats, arriving at U.S. shelters are micro-chipped. As a result, 1 in 3 family pets will get lost.  Without ID, 90 percent of lost pets will not return home. A microchip is the only form of pet identification that is permanent, with a unique number that cannot fall off, be altered or be removed.

The HomeAgain microchip is a safe and permanent method of identification for pets. Thanks to the HomeAgain Microchip and the HomeAgain Pet Recovery Service, more than 1 million lost pets have been returned to their families. HomeAgain helps recover approximately 14,000 lost pets each month.

Once your pet is microchipped, the next step is to enroll your pet's microchip ID along with your contact information in the HomeAgain National Pet Recovery Database. This step is critical to reuniting you with your lost pet once he is found.

Microchipping and enrolling your pet in the HomeAgain database maximizes the chance that your pet is recovered should he become lost.  HomeAgain will instantly send lost pet alerts to volunteer PetRescuers in the area your pet was lost. These PetRescuers include veterinary clinics, animal shelters and more than 1 million individual volunteers who have signed up to receive email alerts about pets lost in their neighborhoods. HomeAgain will enable you to easily create a lost pet poster with your pet's picture which you can distribute in the area your pet was lost. If your lost dog or cat is found more than 500 miles away from home, HomeAgain will cover up to $500 to have the found pet flown home.
