Do I need to register with the original microchip company if auto-uploads are set up?

  • Updated

Shelterluv currently only auto-uploads to Michelson Found Animals Registry, SmartTag, PetLink, and AKC Reunite. Most of our customers decide to use Found Animals because it's a non-profit, free registry that accepts all brands of chips.

If you buy chips from another manufacturer/company, you have the option to also register each chip with the original company that issued it.

Most shelters/vets know to check the universal microchip lookup tool ( to see which registry has the most up-to-date information, but some may still call the original company directly.
