Microchipping Services
 
Over 10 million pets become lost each year, according to the National Humane Society. One out of every three pets becomes lost during its lifetime, and only one in ten lost pets is found. Microchipping is a proven way to successfully recover your pet should it become lost.

The San Diego Humane Society and SPCA offers microchipping services to ensure the safety of your pet and that you can quickly recover your pet should they ever become lost.

What is microchipping?
Microchipping is permanent pet identification. The process is a safe, simple and permanent form of pet identification designed to quickly identify lost pets and reunite them with their owners. We inject the microchip, which is about the size of a grain of rice (12mm), beneath the surface of your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. The process is similar to a routine shot, takes only a few seconds, and your pet will not react any more than he would to a vaccination. No anesthetic is required.
 
How do recoveries happen?
HomeAgain microchips are designed to last your pet’s entire lifetime, and once enrolled, they link to a permanent record of your owner information. Your microchip comes with a personal listing in HomeAgain’s lost pet database. The microchip has no internal energy source, so it will last the life of your pet. It is read by passing a microchip scanner over the pet’s shoulder blades. The scanner emits a low radio frequency that provides the power necessary to transmit the microchips unique cat or dog ID code and positively identify the pet.

If your pet gets lost and is taken to an animal shelter or veterinarian, they will scan the microchip to read its unique dog or cat ID code. This is the number used by HomeAgain to identify the pet and retrieve your contact information, which is used to contact you and reunite you with your pet. Read more about HomeAgain’s services»
