Pet Microchip Search

When you search for a pet's microchip number, the system automatically checks our database to complete a real-time search to find your pet's registry and directory.

This is helpful not only for pet owners but also for people who found the pet and want to return them. Once a pet founder looks up the registry and directory of a pet, they can directly notify the pet owner that their pet is safe and can be retrieved where they are.

Aside from the finder's contact number, no other personal information is revealed to both parties since we want to avoid any Data Privacy breaches.

What is a pet microchip?

A microchip contains an identification number containing nine, ten, or fifteen digits. The pet owner's contact information is then stored and maintained at one of the many pet registry services. A pet's owner determines whether or not to provide the registry with contact information. Subsequently, microchips do not store the medical information of a pet.
