AKC CAR has a one-time fee, and updating information is free, which is why I chose them.

Good to know. Now, the big question, can I register Caleb's Avid chip, or does it have to be a specific brand? I thought at one point they would only register Home Again.

I like HomeAgain. They're well-known. They seem to be pretty on the ball. They have a yearly fee for their additional services (which includes a free call to poison control iirc), but all you *need* to pay is the initial registration fee for the chip to work.

That's good to know. They are the main one I have looked at.

My dog's chips show up on the "Pet Microchip Lookup" website but not the "Petlink" site, I use Home Again.

Thanks, that sounds like a good deal to me, and she's already AKC registered.

My dog and cat both got Avid chips from the shelter when I adopted them. All of the So. Calif. shelters use Avid, and they chip all animals they adopt out.

I have paperwork from Avid that shows they are registered, and my info. They don't show up on the Petlink site. On the Pet Microchip Lookup site, the cat's info says "No pet owner information was found in the associated databases" and then "This is most likely a microchip from: Avid"

The dog's chip comes up registered with Found Animals and AKC CAR. I've never heard of Found Animals but maybe it has to do with the UKC/AMBOR registry I signed up for ages ago.

As far as I know, Avid keeps their own records, and anyone who finds an animal with an Avid chip has to call Avid. What's up with "microchip registries"? I thought that once they were chipped, and registered once (with Avid at least) then you're good. Those other two sites make it seem like they know about all of the chips...that disturbs me.

At least in my area, I'm pretty confident that all of the shelters have Avid readers. Something to think about when you're travelling out of state, though.
