What Happens if My Pet Gets Lost?
When a pet gets lost, it can be hard to know where to start. With a Home Again microchip, the first thing you can do is contact Home Again. They’ll put out a lost pet alert to notify animal shelters, vet clinics, and volunteers within a 25-mile radius of where your pet was lost. When your dog or cat is brought into a shelter or clinic, the staff will scan their microchip and notify Home Again, who will look up your contact information in their database and give you a call.
The most important thing to remember about having a microchip is that it is up to you to keep the information in Home Again’s database up to date. If your phone number changes, or you move, it’s essential that you remember to update the information, so your pet can be returned to you without a hitch.
