Animal shelters and animal control officers have been educated and informed about microchip identification and how it works. Shelters use industry wide, cross-compatible scanners that read all chips operating at a certain frequency. Once a microchip is located in an animal, the appropriate steps are taken. If the animal is registered, the shelter will be given the owner’s name. If the animal is not registered, they will be given the name of the veterinarian or the agency that injected the microchip.
