This has been a total waste of time, money & frustration.

I gave up figuring they had my contact info from the form I filled out and I did not need an account and I was not about to create, yet another, password to remember.

You can have you pet microchipped with a HomeAgain chip but I would not pay the yearly subscription fees for the service.

I have both of my dogs microchipped with HomeAgain chips. Home Again charges a yearly fee instead of a 1 time database registration fee. The reason for this yearly fee is the "Help" they supposedly give you to locate your pet when it goes missing. In theory that sounds great but in reality not so. One of my dogs went missing while traveling in Arkansas. I immediately reported the dog missing to Home Again and gave them specific information on where the dog went missing. They generated the lost dog poster/flyer and it correctly stated where the dog went missing. After looking up their lost pet app for apple my dog was not listed as missing. Consequently, I started asking questions and wanted a list of the vets they contacted on my behalf. They apparently do not have access to this information in the call center. Several days later I received a list and they contacted 30+ vets etc in Georgia(home). Basically, none of the additional services did me any good in my search for my lost pet. You can have you pet microchipped with a HomeAgain chip but I would not pay the yearly subscription fees for the service. Instead register the chip with one of the other databases (they are all linked now). I like the AKC CAR database. $15 one time fee as long as you own the dog.

BTW - our pet returned home on her own approx 24 hours after she disappeared. :)

If you have NOT registered your pet with Home Again, skip them. Go with American Kennel Club CAR online setup. You pay a onetime fee for lifetime registration. Around $18 online, around $20 snail mail or fax. The register any and all pet chips.
[...]

*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.

As a breeder of AKC Registered Labrador Retrievers I always recommend a microchip for puppies as wells as adult dogs. Home Again offers a great product but it is not mandatory to register the microchip with them. I register my Labrador Retrievers microchips with AKC CAR (American Kennel Club Companion Animal Recovery). AKC CAR offers registration of ANY brand microchip for a lifetime fee of $17.50 online - there is no recurring annual fee. Any any breed dog or cross bred dog can is eligible - the dog/puppy does not have to be AKC Registered. Their purpose is to help return a lost pet home. My Labrador Retrievers are all microchipped with Home Again brand microchips but are registered through AKC CAR.

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 [...]

I agree, very deceptive sales tactics. It just didn't seem correct when I read that I had to pay for an annual membership to a service that really does nothing but record your pet. After asking a number of friends they all were surprised by the recurring fee requirement as they did not have such a fee. I finally found this post warning that it is not required to continue the membership. It does appear that one must take an extra step to cancel the subscription, otherwise, HomeAgain will automatically charge your credit card next year.

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.
