PETtrac™ is a pet recovery service that's been saving pets for over 25 years. Its secure database maintains the information you provide so we can contact you when your pet is recovered. When an animal care professional finds your lost pet we contact you or your alternate to help bring your pet home. Thousands of pets are reunited with their owners each week.
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. Remember, a microchipped pet has a better chance at 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.
