If your pet already has a microchip and you want to see if the chip is still active, you are welcome to stop by for us to scan your pet.

We will help verify your information is current with the microchip company your pet is registered with. 

​Microchip and Registration 

The found pet
When a lost pet is brought to Golf Rose, the first thing we do is scan for a microchip. When the scanner displays the unique identification number, we act quickly to obtain the owner's information and reunite the pet with its family.   

Should I microchip my pet?
  And here's why!

​​Microchip and Registration 

What is  a Microchip?
A microchip is a tiny, implantable transponder that is injected under your pet's skin, similar to getting a vaccination. Each microchip has a unique identification number encoded into its integrated circuit which is linked to YOUR contact information. 

The microchip is not a GPS, does not use batteries and is read by a microchip scanner. The microchip is permanent and will last the life of your pet.
