Can you imagine what it's like to lose a pet? Thanks to Home Again Microchips, two million pets have been reunited with their owners. 

Losing a pet is any pet owner's worst nightmare. And if your pet slips out of their collar or doesn't have identification on them, your chances of being reunited with that pet are dramatically reduced. Microchips can help to reconnect you with your lost pet, and Home Again Microchips has just celebrated their two millionth reunion!

The Greene family was devastated when Honey Bee escaped and got lost. The dog was missing for 16 days, but she had a microchip and Home Again helped her family with their search. Take a look at this video to find out what happened next.

Microchipping your pet is a simple preventative measure that can become so important if your pet ever gets lost. There are countless stories of pets and owners being reunited even years after the pet gets lost, all thanks to microchips.

When you microchip your pet, you then register your pet and your contact information with the microchip company's database. The microchip is tiny and is implanted underneath your pet's skin. If your pet gets lost and is brought to a vet or a shelter, the staff will scan your pet to check for a microchip. They will then use the microchip's ID number to find out who your pet is and who owns him. As long as you keep your information with the database up to date, the vet or shelter will be able to contact you and reunite you with your pet.

Thanks to Home Again microchips, two million pets have been reunited with their owners. The lives of two million pets and owners have been changed, thanks to a simple, affordable precaution.
