Microchipping is permanent pet identification. The HomeAgain® Pet Recovery Service is a safe, simple and permanent form of pet identification designed to quickly identify lost pets and reunite them with their owners. Over 10 million pets become lost each year. 1 out of 3 pets is lost during its lifetime, and only 1 in 10 lost pets is found. The HomeAgain® Pet Recovery service is a proven way to successfully recover your pet if it should become lost. Nearly 10% of pets enrolled in the HomeAgainâ Pet Recovery Service have become lost and were successfully reunited with their owners.
The HomeAgain® microchip is no bigger than a grain of rice. It is a small, sterile transponder that contains a unique ID code capable of being read (scanned) by an ISO standard scanner. The procedure to implant the microchip is simple and similar to administering a vaccine. The microchip is injected by a veterinarian just under the skin between the shoulder blades on your pet's back. Anesthesia is not necessary for implantation.
Once your pet is microchipped, fill out the enrollment form enclosed with the microchip, or enroll online at HomeAgainID.com . The enrollment information is stored in our secure HomeAgain® Pet Recovery database and is used to contact you should your pet become lost.
Rest assured that if your pet is lost, scanning can help point the way home. Thousands of veterinarians, animal shelters and animal control agencies routinely use harmless hand held scanning devices to read the ID code on the microchip. The HomeAgain® Pet Recovery Service simply matches the unique ID code to your contact information. Once all information has been verified, you are contacted immediately and plans are made for you to bring your pet home.
