Microchip Scanner Initiative
PLEASE ADD YOUR MICROCHIP NUMBER TO YOUR REGISTRATION DETAILS – its free and you can manage any microchip number via DogLost.
DogLost is always seeking new ways to help find your dog, and a new scheme will soon link microchip scanners to our database – due to be launched in September.
This means that when a dog is scanned with our scanner an alert will be shown on the scanner stating if the dog is held on our database as lost or stolen. This will save time for Vets and other professional and make it easy for them to scan all dogs as a matter of course.
The scanners will only be available to vets, dog wardens, rescue centres and similar professionals. The scanner, linked to our database, will allow them to see immediately if a scanned dog has been registered as LOST on DogLost, and contact us to help reunite you with your dog promptly.
How You Can Help
· Make sure your pet is microchipped;
· Add your pet’s microchip details to their DogLost record – it does not matter which microchip company you purchased your chip from – PLUS you can change your name and address on your registered details for free!!;
· If you have already added your pet’s microchip details, please double-check that they are correct;
· Tell your friends, and get them to add/check their pet’s details, too
Remember, only you and our co-ordinators can see the microchip details on your dog’s record. Please enter only the information exactly as it appears on the chip – any mis-matches will be ingnored by the scanners.
THANK YOU – this will make a real difference!!
