*sometimes the vet will allow you to pre-pay your fee. Make sure to check with the vet so you do not pay twice.
If you pets are already registered with Home Again:
Google the sentence below. You will find the sentence buried deep in the website. I think it may even be in a "hidden" page buried several down where no one would ever find it. I was only able to locate it when I googled this sentence from another review on Amazon:
"Once entered in the HomeAgain database, microchips are registered for life, whether or not pet owners renew their annual memberships, and contact information may be updated online anytime free of charge by logging into HomeAgain"
You DO have to pay a fee of around $18 to REGISTER the chip to be in the US wide database. Click here to confirm your pet is in the database. [...]
Home Again will be listed if indeed the pet is registered.
You Do NOT have to pay an annual fee although Home Again website and brochures make it appear you have to in order to continue the registration.
This is terribly deceptive. Do not use your credit card, pay by check. They will continue to send you snail mail urging you to renew your membership insisting you need it to protect your pet. The membership provides "extras" which you really won't need since you will most likely do these things yourself as soon as your pet is missing.
Again, You DO NOT need to do this for the chip to be in the database.
BTW - our pet returned home on her own approx 24 hours after she disappeared. :)
A microchip for a dog/puppy is very much like a social security number for humans - it is unique and not numerically duplicated. Almost every Animal Control/Dog Pound has scanners to check a microchip in a national registry. Once reported, the owner is immediately notified of the recovery. A microchip is not for GPS tracking. A scanner is necessary to read the chip. In the event of the sale or transfer of ownership of the dog/puppy - the microchip registration is transferable.
There is a specific manner and location for microchip implanting. Veterinarian's are trained professionals and implant the microchip without any damage to the dog/puppy. The implantation is below the skin and care must be executed not to implant the microchip in a vein or blood vessel.
I recommend the Home Again Microchip with the AKC CAR Registration. You can find more information on AKC CAR at [...]
Go to the ACKCar.org website to register. Give them the extra 1.50 ($17.50 registration fee). I just don't trust a business that has to trick you into buying their services.
