If you do not activate the chip, no one knows who you are or how to contact you!
A shelter will read the microchip number, but no owner information is attached. Your pet is at risk of being adopted or being euthanized if an owner cannot be found!
If someone finds your lost pet, the odds are high they will take him/her to a local shelter. This will waste time, cause anxiety for your pet and cost you money when you go to the shelter to claim your pet.
Safe Places™ prevents all of that! Once you are a member, login and list two ‘Safe Places’. Neighbors, friends or family. When your pet is found by someone, we will give that person the location of your nearest ‘Safe Place’. Your pet is simply dropped off and never enters a shelter. You can change your Safe Places™ any time!
Simple. Any type, any brand. Our Registry is universal! You do not even need to know the brand name. You can even move pets from other registries here – so all of your pets can be managed in one place.
If your pet is ever missing you can launch a free SearchALERT! Just call or login to your account. A SearchALERT is a nationwide notification placed on your pet’s microchip with this logo –
The chip is flagged in our database AND in the national tracking system.
The scanner sends a quick radio signal to the chip. The pet feels nothing. When the chip number appears in the scanner window, the shelter or veterinarian will then contact us to find the registered owner connected to the microchip number.
$22.95 for registration and activation. Includes any updates at any time, and all SearchAlerts.
You will be protected by two nationally recognized databases. For life. No more fees. Ever.
Call us immediately if your pet is lost OR log in to your web account and push the LOST button. A Pet SearchALERT™ is posted on the national system. Send our official lost pet picture to your social network. Call us for help and guidance. When your pet is found, we will let you know – fast!

Most countries require that a pet be microchipped in order to enter that country. The chip number must be 15-digits long and is referred to as an ISO chip (it meets the specifications of the International Standards Organization.)
You can order that chip here in our Store and have your vet install it.
