Featured Advice from Our Experts
Don't wait until disaster strikes to think about what to do. You may literally only have minutes to worry about your own safety and that of your pet(s) or animals. With that in mind, here are a few tips for preparing for disaster...
Foolproof ID, record keeping and verification system.
The national recovery network database is managed by the American Kennel Club. Gives added protection from theft and fraud. Increase value and security for your litter. The unique ID numbers are encoded in the microchip.
About the size of a grain of rice, pet microchips contain a radio transmitter, an antenna and a computer chip that is read by a scanner, allowing animal control, vets, or shelters to obtain owners' information in the event a pet gets lost.
NOTE: After the HomeAgain® microchip is implanted, it is IMPERATIVE that the Enrollment Form be filled out and mailed or faxed to HomeAgain Recovery Database. Companion Animal Recovery is available with live agents 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Have questions? Call them anytime at 1-866-738-4324.
The HomeAgain® microchip will not help your pet if it is not registered.
Cost of registration and annual membership fees are not included in purchase prices. Any questions regarding registration fees or membership should be addressed to the toll free number above.

"did the job, but large and uncomfortable"
This microchip system works, but it is by far the largest needle I've used for microchipping. It works and does what it is supposed to, but it's extra large size makes it uncomfortable for small puppies or kittens. I would not recommend this microchip system. It's too large and painful. It's double the size of other chipping systems.
"Use for Mini Llama ID"
We use these microchips for our miniature llamas. Great for ID use on Health Certificates when taking them out-of-state for shows or when sold to an out-of-state owner. The microchip number is a permanent ID number on our miniature llamas registration with the ILR (International Llama Registry) and AMLA (American Miniature Llama Association).
These chips are awesome. If the dog is or will be AKC reg., you can submit the chip number for their program, covering the dog for a one time, lifetime fee, and the owner is covered for the life of the dog. A great price on a great product, thanks to Jeffers for offering the product!
"Well worth it"
My puppy was lost for only a few hours when I got a phone call from the local shelter that he had been found. He had lost his collar and ID tag in his journey but this allowed me to bring him home. Well worth the money and homeagain enrollment fee. Even if the shelter had not contacted me, I received an email from Homeagain 10 mins later. It is a small price to pay to make sure your pet is not lost forever.
"My babies are worth it"
I am a small breeder who has all my puppies micro chipped at 6 weeks old. I believe my babies are worth it and my vet inserts them scans them all at a very reasonable price.
"A Must Have"
"I have seen the ""new"" rescue chip that vets are providing for rescue dogs. But none compare with ""Home Again."" When I rescue a fur baby, I believe he/she is just as important as any other animal and I believe they should have the best. I know there is no activation fee for the rescue chip, but if someone is adopting one of mine that has already been through heck ... and been rescued... aren't they worth the activation fee and registration fee each year? Home Again is national and I have yet to hear of it failing. The cost is cheap when you compare to the cost at the vet."
"Simple & Cheap"
This is a very simple tool to use and apply to your pets. My three dogs tolerated well, and activated at the HomeAgain website without difficulty. I have recomended to multiple friends that do not have their pets with microchips for identification.
I have my vet microchip all the pups I sell. . She normally charges $45, but only $10 each to insert chips that I bring to a puppy litter visit. This saves me a bundle, which is passed along to the puppy buyer.
