Each year, thousands of lost and abandoned animals are taken in by shelters and humane societies across North America; some never make it back home because they can't be identified.


Collar tags can break or become unreadable and tattooing can become illegible.  So, if you want to improve your pet's chances of getting home fast and safe in case it goes missing, microchipping is your best option.


Microchipping offers pet owners the security and peace of mind that comes from the only permanent pet identification technology and a safe and secure way to reunite you and your pet, via our Lost Pet Recovery Service. 

One of the many services that are extended to you at the time of adoption is a ID microchip.  This is a small microchip that is implanted under the skin at the time of adoption.  It is done by means of a painless shot on the back of the neck, or the scruff.  Once the chip has been implanted, someone at our facility will check to make sure the device is working.  This will give your pet an identification number that can be recalled and checked for at any shelter, humane society or vet's office.  All of this is done through 24 Hour PetWatch's Direct Connect program.
