Frequently Asked Questions

What must I present to prove that my animal is microchipped?
To register your pet's microchip with Animal Care Services, you must either have the animal scanned by a staff member onsite, or you may provide the documentation that indicates the micrcohip has been implanted and registered with the microchip company. When licensing your pet, please be ready to provide the following in-person or by mail:

  • Microchip number
  • Documentation from a licensed veterinarian indicating the chip was implanted
  • Certificate of implantation
It is important to note that many pet owners have microchips implanted but fail to submit the registration information with the microchip provider. Animal Care Services provides pre-registered microchips, and will submit the registration information on behalf of the pet owner to ensure successful registration.
