Microchip Registration

Our one-time fee of $20.00 per animal protects your pet for life. You will never be charged a fee for information updates or recovery assistance. By registering with Homeward Bound you are also helping animals less fortunate than yours; a portion of each fee will be used for relief of animals in crisis situations and to advance education on animal related issues.

Microchips are about the same size as a grain of rice and are coded with a unique number that may be registered with our Homeward Bound Animal Recovery program. The microchip is injected between the shoulder blades under the skin, much like a vaccine. Once the pet is injected and your registration with Homeward Bound Pet is completed, your animal will be permanently registered in a nationwide database.

These microchips are an excellent idea for breeders of purebred animals and pet owners. They ensure that your animals can always be identified.

The Best Protection Available

A chip is only as good as the system that tracks it! The Homeward Bound chip is backed by United All Breed Registry and the Universal Pet Lookup Tool, a central database of microchip registrations maintained by the American Animal Hospital Association. Every veterinarian, shelter and animal control unit will check there first, ensuring that your pet is returned to you. When you choose to microchip your pet, you have made a commitment to do more than just care for these animals; you have taken steps to protect them as well. The identification system provider you select should make an equal, if not greater commitment. Your pet’s protection doesn’t get any better than Homeward Bound Pet: our hotline operators are standing by 24 hours a day, every day of the year, ready to take the call when someone finds your pet.
