If you do not activate the chip, no one knows who you are or how to contact you!
A shelter will read the microchip number, but no owner information is attached. Your pet is at risk of being adopted or being euthanized if an owner cannot be found!
If someone finds your lost pet, the odds are high they will take him/her to a local shelter. This will waste time, cause anxiety for your pet and cost you money when you go to the shelter to claim your pet.
Safe Places™ prevents all of that! Once you are a member, log in and list two ‘Safe Places’. Neighbors, friends or family. When your pet is found by someone, we will give that person the location of your nearest ‘Safe Place’. Your pet is simply dropped off and never enters a shelter. You can change your Safe Places™ any time!
Simple. Any type, any brand. Our Registry is universal! You do not even need to know the brand name. You can even move pets from other registries here – so all of your pets can be managed in one place.
If your pet is ever missing you can launch a free SearchALERT! Just call or log in to your account. A SearchALERT is a nationwide notification placed on your pet’s microchip with this logo –
The chip is flagged in our database AND in the national tracking system.
The scanner sends a quick radio signal to the chip. The pet feels nothing. When the chip number appears in the scanner window, the shelter or veterinarian will then contact us to find the registered owner connected to the microchip number.
$26.95 is our one time fee. No gimmicks, no hidden fees, no renewal fees. And Lost Pet Alerts are always FREE. Yes, our SearchAlert™ feature is included. (We don’t think you should pay extra when your pet is lost!) Update your info at any time, too, at no charge. You will be protected by two nationally recognized databases. For life. No more fees. Ever.
New! Our new Chip Checker allows anyone who finds your lost pet to reach you instantly. Check it out here. Your privacy is protected, too.

Send our official lost pet poster to your social network. Call us for help and guidance. When your pet is found, we will let you know – fast!

Most countries require that a pet be microchipped in order to enter that country. The chip number must be 15-digits long and is referred to as an ISO chip (it meets the specifications of the International Standards Organization.)
You can order that chip here in our Store and have your vet install it.

Great! If the owner has registered the chip, get ready for a happy reunion!
Give us a call at 800.434.2843. We will ask you for the microchip number. (Located on the pet’s tag or via a scanner used at a vet office or shelter.)
Note: If the chip is NOT registered to an individual owner we will track it to the source – vet or rescue or breeder – to help facilitate the reunion.
