A HomeAgain microchip may be the most important gift you give to your pet.
Why is a Microchip Important?
Pets get lost every day. In fact, one out of every 3 pets will go missing during its lifetime. Without proper ID, up to 90% of these pets never return home. One out of every two lost dogs and one out of every three cats with registered microchips return home.
What is a microchip?
*A microchip is a safe, permanent way to identify a lost pet.
*A microchip is smaller than a grain of rice and can be placed under your pet’s skin without surgery.
*Microchip do not hurt your pet. The procedure is simple and similar to administering a vaccine or a routine shot.
*Microchips are more reliable than a collar or tag because they can not fall off or get lost.

- Microchip your pet with a HomeAgain microchip.
- Connect your contact information to your pet’s microchip ID number at http://www.homeagain.com
*Register your pet’s microchip ID number in the HomeAgain National Pet Recovery Database. You, the clinic or shelter can do this. Check with the clinic or shelter to see if the microchip has already been registered.
