Owned and operated by Avid Identification Systems Inc., the PETtrac™ Pet Recovery Network is the world's largest and longest operating microchip-based pet recovery service. PETtrac has been continually in operation for over 25 years and today continues to reunite lost or displaced pets through its 24/7/365 pet recovery service. Since its launch over 20 years ago, PETtrac 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 being reunited with a pet owner; but only if the pet is registered in a pet recovery database. Once your microchipped pet is registered with PETtrac, your pet can never leave home without positive identification.
When you choose PETtrac, you get a pet recovery service that’s been in business for over 20 years.
