HomeAgain Always Looking out for your Pet LogoHomeAgain® Lost Pet Recovery System
Your pet is an important member of the family and unfortunately millions of pets are lost or stolen each year.

  • An estimated 135 million pets do not have a microchip.
  • Microchipping is a permanent, entirely unalterable form of pet identification.
  • Shelters, humane societies and veterinarians are using microchip scanners in ever-increasing numbers.
  • Microchipping is inexpensive, safe, fast and virtually painless for a pet.
How HomeAgain® Works
The HomeAgain® microchip is a tiny, rice-sized device encoded with a unique, permanent identification number. The device itself is implanted by a veterinarian just under the skin between the shoulders. Insertion is quick and virtually painless with no anesthetic or further treatment required. The pet owner must enroll their pets unique identification number into the HomeAgain® Lost Pet Recovery Service. 

The HomeAgain® Lost Pet Recovery Service can be reached at 1-866-466-3242. If your pet is lost, the microchip can be detected and the identification code read by a scanner used by veterinarians, animal shelters and other pet-related agencies. The identification code, registered with the HomeAgain® Lost Pet Recovery Service, is matched to the owner or the designated contact to initiate the recovery process.

From Enrollment to Recovery: How the HomeAgain® System Works

Once the HomeAgain® microchip has been implanted in your pet, your veterinarian will provide you with a HomeAgain® Lost Pet Recovery Service enrollment form. In order to enroll your pet in the database, complete and mail this form to the HomeAgain® Lost Pet Recovery Service.
You can also enroll online by visiting www.homeagain.com

Your veterinarian will also provide you with a special yellow tag to attach to your pet's collar. This promptly alerts any animal shelter or veterinarian that your pet has a microchip and is enrolled in the HomeAgain® Lost Pet Recovery Service database.

Stay in Touch
Always make sure that your contact information is accurate and up to date. Visit our website or call 1-866-466-3242 in the event you move, obtain a new telephone number or change veterinarians. Keeping your contact information updated is absolutely essential in the event your pet becomes lost.

For Life
You’ve made a lifetime commitment to your pet, and HomeAgain® makes the same to you. With no batteries or energy source, the microchip is activated only when a scanner reads it. The scanner provides the microchip with the power necessary to transmit the unique code that identifies your pet. Since the microchip needs no power itself, it will transmit the unique ID code for the life of your pet.

Recovery Services
The HomeAgain® Lost Pet Recovery Service’s database contains information on more than 6 million pets, with thousands of new enrollments each month. The program is dedicated to reuniting pets with their owners—24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Thanks to the HomeAgain® Lost Pet Recovery Service, more than 500,000 lost pets have been recovered.
