HomeAgain pet microchip and pet id


We suggest microchipping your pet. Twenty five percent of pets get lost sometime during their lifetime. The microchips are registered with a national registry, so you can be assured that support staff is on duty 24 hours daily. Almost all shelters have scanners to check lost pets.
