Why it's important to chip your animals
  1. It’s the only way to identify your animal as yours if they are separated from you and loose their identification tags.

  2. It’s the law that if your animal is lost the authorities must check that chip when they find your animal to make sure that they don’t rehome your animal without your consent. This assures your animal will get back to you if they are picked up by the authorities.

  3. Having that number and information nationally and locally available will assist in getting your animal back to you faster.

Why you should register your chip with us
  1. FREE FOR LIFE - Some chip registries require that you pay annual fees for them to continue to store your information, and you may not know that if you didn’t read the fine print. We register your chip with the Michelson's Found Animals registry ( This database is FREE FOR LIFE.

  2. NATIONAL DATABASE OF MICROCHIPS - Some chips brands are not part of the national registry of chips. This database is part of the national database.

  3. ACCURATE CURRENT CONTACT INFORMATION - Some chips are registered to the previous owner and have never been changed, or your information may not be accurate. This is your chance to update your information and make sure it is accurate.

  4. MAKE SURE YOUR CHIP IS WORKING - Your chip may not be reading properly. We can check your pet for a chip and make sure you have that number so you can update your information.

  5. LOCAL DATABASE - We will have a local record so that we can quickly contact you and get your dog back to you so that your pet will hopefully not have to go to an animal shelter (currently Fremont County Animal Shelter for animals found in Custer and Fremont Counties).

Microchip Misconceptions 
  1. Microchips work like GPS. NO

  2. Microchips store all my information. NO they do not they only store a number. Once that number is scanned by a vet or authority person they have to figure out who made the chip, then call that database to find out the owner information. (the registry we use will register any brand of chip)

  3. Microchip registration is for life. – Not always – Depends on the brand, the arrangement with the company and what fee you decide to pay to that company (our registry is national and Free for life)

  4. All Microchips are part of a national database – NO – there are a few, but not all companies use the national database. (our registry is part of the national database and takes any and all chip brands)
