Owned and operated by Avid Identification Systems Inc. the PETtrac™ Recovery Network is the worlds largest and longest operating microchip based pet recovery service. The PETtrac Recovery Network has been continuously in operation for over 25 years and today continues to reunite lost or displaced pets through its 24/7/365 pet recovery service and database. Since its launch over 20 years ago the PETtrac Recovery Network has successfully reunited over a million lost pets with their owners.
Why Register My Pets Microchip?
Microchipping your pet alone does not establish permanent identification; when owners fail to register their pet's microchip the pet is not fully protected. Unregistered pets are difficult to trace back to their owners when they become lost or get stolen because there's no contact information on file. These pets take up unnecessary resources and cost taxpayers and donors an average of $120.00 per pet to house an unclaimed animal in a shelter. Unregistered pets that become lost can be adopted, rescued, and even euthanized if an owner cannot be found. Remember, a microchipped pet has a better chance of being reunited with his owner, but only if the pet is registered in a pet recovery database. Once your microchipped pet is registered in the PETtrac Recovery Network your pet can never leave home without positive identification.
When you select PETtrac you choose a pet recovery service that’s been in business for over 20 years. Once your pet is implanted with the Avid® FriendChip™ or another microchip brand and you register your pet's microchip with PETtrac, he benefits from PETtrac's safety-net of protection for the rest of his life. This safety-net includes:

- Lifetime enrollment with no annual registration fees.
- Secure, private pet recovery database.
