Your pet's microchip ID code, just like your pet, is one of a kind. When your lost pet is taken to an animal shelter or veterinary clinic, they will scan your pet for a microchip and will read its unique code. This code is stored with your pet's profile and linked to your contact information in our pet database, permanently. Over 50,000 vets and animal shelters across the country are equipped with scanners that can read your pet's microchip, so you 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.
It is important to keep your pet's profile up to date with your current contact information and a recent photo of your pet. HomeAgain members have unlimited access to log in and update their pet profiles.
