Microchipping

We recommend HomeAgain Microchips as a permanent identification for your pet.
The HomeAgain microchip is tiny (about the size of a grain of rice) and is injected beneath the surface of your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. The process is similar to a routine shot and takes only a few seconds. No anesthetic is required. The microchip is made of an inert, biocompatible substance, which means that it won’t cause an allergic reaction or degenerate over time. It is also the only microchip on the market today that has the Bio-Bond patented anti-migration feature to help ensure that the microchip stays in place. Once registered, your pet is entered into a nationwide database that will connect your pet and microchip number with your contact information. If your pet gets lost and is taken to a shelter or veterinary hospital, they will scan the pet and retrieve the identification number. They will then call HomeAgain and give them the number, which is used to contact you and reunite you with your pet.

1 in 3 pets will get lost during their lifetime. Ten million pets get lost every year and without identification 90% of them never return home. HomeAgain reunites 10,000 pets with their owners every month. Microchipping is a permanent, entirely unalterable form of pet identification. Shelters, humane societies, and veterinarians are using microchip scanners in ever-increasing numbers and many shelters are microchipping their adopted pets before sending them to their new home. Microchipping is inexpensive, safe, fast, and virtually painless for the pet.HomeAgain Lost Pet Specialists are available 24/7 to assist you if your pet goes missing.
