What is MCID... Micro-chip ID
It's a technology miracle.

This inexpensive procedure can he done anytime and, best of all, protect virtually any pet you love... dogs, cats, horses, birds, reptiles, exotics. ewm fish! Everywhere your pet goes, the Micro-Chip is there. Real protection that can't fade or fall off.
How the Micro-Chip works
Tragically, most never make it back home because their owners didn't identify them. Identifying your pet is vital. With MCID, your pet can't leave home without his identification. If your lost pet is found by a participating shelter, they'll check him for a microchip with a special scanner.
When the shelter finds the chip number, they call 24 hour hotline at 800-336-2843. After a quick search of the PETtrac database, you, your veterinarian, or your alternate is contacted, and your pet comes home! Scanners are provided free of charge to any shelter that requests one.
Over 17,000 scanners have already been distributed and lost pets are being found every day. The dedication and commitment of shelter personnel makes our system work. They are directly responsible for the recovery of thousands of lost pets. These shelter professionals are truely heroes.
