A pet microchip creates a forever bond between you and the pet you love. And together with the HomeAgain pet recovery system, you’ll give your pet the best chance of coming back home to you.
HomeAgain microchips are designed to last your pet’s entire lifetime, and once enrolled, they link to a permanent record of your owner information. Your microchip comes with a personal listing in our lost pet database, and this translates to anytime/anywhere pet recovery services. Over 50,000 vets and animal shelters across the country are equipped with scanners that can read your pet’s microchip. So, HomeAgain members can breathe a little easier knowing their lost cat or dog can be identified whether he’s 3 or 3,000 miles away from home.
The microchip is a rice-sized transponder that is injected just under the skin between the shoulder blades. Each microchip carries a unique alpha-numeric code which cannot be corrupted and when scanned will transmit that number to the microchip reader. Your pet’s microchip ID code, just like your pet, is one of a kind. If your pet is lost anywhere within the United States, local shelters and veterinarians can scan him or her and retrieve your pet’s unique number. They then call Home Again and can look up the pet by its number. Once found, the owner can be contacted immediately, as long as they remember to keep all of their information updated with Home Again. This unique system of ID-ing pets has become one of the leading in the nation, with over 1,153,000 pets recovered through Home Again microchips.
