Pet Owners

Did you know approximately 6 to 8 million pets enter animal shelters in the U.S. every year? Developed by a veterinarian, The Avid FriendChip™ permanently identifies your pet and provides a direct link to you through PETtrac, Avid's pet recovery service. The Avid FriendChip and the PETtrac Global Recovery Network reunites thousands of lost pets with their families every week!

Lost Pet

Protect Your Pet

“My pet won’t get lost” or “My pet never leaves the yard”. That's what most pet owners think until the door or gate is left ajar, or worse, a hurricane, tornado, or fire ravages their community. Thousands of pets were displaced as a result of Hurricane Katrina, and that's just one natural disaster. How many "lost pet" flyers have you seen or even posted in your own community? Did you know that a family pet is lost every few seconds? That's millions of lost pets every year!

Don't wait until it's too late. Overcrowded shelters have limited resources and can only house new arrivals for a short period of time. Shelters receive hundreds of lost or displaced pets each week and are forced to make hard decisions when pets have no form of identification. Shelters do their very best to locate owners, but if your pet has no form of identification, there's not much they can do. Discuss the Avid FriendChip with your veterinarian today.
