NEW TOOL TO HELP TO RETURN LOST PETS TO THEIR FAMILY
The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) of Lakewood, CO has developed a unique tool to help finders of lost pets to locate the animal’s family. Their database will search all the microchip databases and find the most current database entry. It will provide the phone number of that database which will then be able to give you the contact information for the family.
Click on the picture of the tag to the upper right, or go to www.petmicrochiplookup.org; enter the microchip ID number and the results will display the most recent information for the animal from the AAHA Universal Microchip Database.
In order to determine if a found pet has a microchip, take the pet to the nearest veterinarian or animal shelter. They will be able to scan for a microchip with a universal scanner which reads all brands and frequencies of microchip.
Thank you for helping to reunite pets and their families.
