Microchipping your pet gives him/her the best chance to return home safely!

Why Microchip Your Pet?

The following is provided by, HomeAgain via petfinder.com

Registered microchips give lost pets the best chance of returning home. The statistics indicate that missing pets rarely make it home:

• The American Humane Association estimates over 10 million dogs and cats are lost or stolen in the U.S. every year.

• One in three pets will become lost at some point during their life. A study published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, including 53 animal shelters across the U.S., confirmed the high rate of return of microchipped dogs and cats to their families, and the importance of microchip registration. From the study:

• Only about 22 percent of lost dogs that entered the animal shelters were reunited with their families. However, the return-to-owner rate for microchipped dogs was over 52 percent (a 238 percent increase).

• Less than 2 percent of lost cats that entered the animal shelters were reunited with their families. The return-to-owner rate for microchipped cats was dramatically higher at over 38 percent (more than 2000 percent better).

• Only 58 percent of the microchipped animals’ microchips had been registered in a database with their pet parent’s contact information.

High-tech protection can prevent heartbreak.

Enter the pet microchip — a simple, elegant product of our high-tech age. No bigger than a grain of rice or more costly than a month’s supply of pet food, a pet microchip and enrollment in a pet recovery database brings lost pets home and provides peace of mind that your beloved companion will never wander unknown.

Veterinarians encourage microchipping.

And with good reason—microchipping substantially increases the likelihood of a pet returning home by offering secure, reliable, unique and permanent identification.

If your pet's chip is NOT registered it is NEVER too late to do so, even if they have gone missing. If you have the number and are unsure as to who to call to register the chip, this is a great tool to help you find out how to do just that providing the chip company participates with  the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). Most popular chip companies do. Also, this is a good way to see if your pet's chip needs renewal or re-registration, again, providing the microchip company participates in this AAHA program.

The Universal Microchip look-up tool, provided by AAHA, is an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered.

AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with participating Pet Recovery Service Registries. These Registries have given AAHA permission to search their databases in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. The AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
