Perish the thought, but sometimes our pets wonder away from home and can’t find their way back. Now their lost and hoping you’ll find them. You’re first feelings will be fear, worry, and panic. You should know that feeling that way is normal, but you need to calmly gather yourself and set to work finding your companion animal. We’ve put together some tips to help you start a quick and thorough search for your beloved pet.
If your pet is registered with HomeAgain and you have paid the annual fee, they will proactively send a fax to all veterinary hospitals, animal shelters and volunteer “PetRescuers” within a 25 mile radius of where your microchipped pet was lost. If you have only paid the lifetime fee, don’t worry – you can still call at any time to pay the annual fee.
Many veterinarians, emergency clinics, and specialist have microchip scanners and will scan an animal that is brought to their facility. They will usually call HomeAgain to report the lost animal and you will receive a call from HomeAgain alerting you to where your animal is at.
To notify HomeAgain of your missing pet, you can call them at 888-466-3242 or log-in to your account at their website.
