You only need to register once however if at any time during the life of your pet you move or change your phone number be sure to contact the chip company so update this information. All SPCAs and Veterinary Hospitals are equipped with microchip scanners. Should a lost pet come into their care they will scan him/her for a chip. If a chip is found they will contact the company to get the owners contact information.
