Microchip You Pet | Home Again Location Technology
If you’re pet is not microchipped you can bring them to us! We will implant a chip and register it nationally and locally with Petlink.
A GPS cat tracking collar is equipped with a GPS chip. That chip sends a signals to a GPS tracker using satellites. If your cat goes missing, the cat's location shows up on the GPS computer map. Using thisinformation, you can drive, hike or walk to the cat's location for recovery. Using a cell phone or tracking unit receiver, you can keep track of your cat's movements while getting to his location. While radiotrackers usually have a range of a few hundred feet, GPS systems can track a pet miles away.
Don't wait until it's too late. Many shelters have limited resources and can only house new arrivals for a short period of time. These facilities receive hundreds of lost pets each week and have to make hard decisions when pets have no form of identification. Shelters do their best to locate owners, but if your pet has no form of identification, there's not much they can do. Discuss the AVID Microchip with your veterinarian today, it could save a life!
Q: Will a microchip tell me my pet's location

Save This Life has patented a way to use a Google™ search to help you find your lost pet! When someone finds a pet and performs a Google™ search of the microchip number, they can then privately contact the pet owner via text and email. The pet owner receives a GPS map of where the person who found their pet is located!The device uses RFID technology (Radio-Frequency Identification) and needs to be scanned in order to extract the unique microchip number. This unique number then needs to be registered along with current contact information. Unfortunately, it is quite common that registration is not completed or the information is out of date, which often results in the animal not being reunited with its family. This means that a microchip is useless unless the pet is found and taken to a location that can scan the chip.GPS trackers let you locate your pet on demand and monitor and record his activity on a smart phone or computer via an app. Some believe that a GPS tracker is overkill when their pet already has a microchip, but this is a misperception based on not fully understanding how these two technologies differ. To ensure a pet’s safety, it’s important to know the risks and benefits of the technologies available so that an informed decision can be made based on what’s best for the guardian and his or her pet.GPS (Global Positioning System) units cover three main categories, all of which differ slightly and therefore have their own benefits as well as limitations. The first category of GPS units is the GPS recorder. Recorders are small, lightweight units that offer post activity map based tracking, which means you have to wait for the animal and unit to return before being able to upload its data and see where the animal has been. While they can be fun by giving the owner the ability to see what his or her pet gets up to during the day, as well as beneficial by letting the owner monitor a pet’s health habits, the GPS recorder cannot locate a pet in real time. In this repect, it is no better than a microchip when a pet isn’t found.
