Microchip and Insurance Benefit Information

The Connecticut Humane Society supports and promotes responsible pet ownership. The following adoption benefits are offered to clients to help keep pets at home and in good health.

Microchip Services
All cats and dogs receive a 24PetWatch microchip prior to adoption.  For more information about this service visit: 24PetWatch.com

Important information about microchips:

  1. Only about 14% of lost dogs and 4% of lost cats are reunited with their families. A microchip is another method of ID and links your pet back to you and increases your chances of reuniting with your pet if they are lost.
  2. It is the size of a grain of rice and is implanted by a veterinarian or trained medical professional. 
  3. Registration of 24PetWatch chips is free from the Connecticut Humane Society for the lifetime of the pet.
  4. If your pet goes missing, call 24PetWatch at 1-866-597-2424 and choose the “lost pet” option.  Your contact information will be confirmed for accuracy.  When your pet is found and identified, you will be connected with the rescuer to be reunited with your pet.
