About AKC CAR
Who We Are
AKC Companion Animal Recovery, founded in 1995, is the largest not for profit pet ID and recovery service. Our focus encompasses:
AKC CAR is committed to Pet Identification, specifically ensuring pets have 2 forms of ID, a tag and a microchip (or tattoo), to aid in their quick identification and return home should they get lost.
With your help, AKC Companion Animal Recovery will maintain its position as the national recovery database of choice in the companion animal community. AKC CAR offers an incredible value for its microchip and ID service, with proceeds supporting the needs of the animals that inhabit and enrich our lives.
Our reach goes beyond identifying and reuniting pets, one-at-a-time. It is our hope to remain a pipeline of support through microchip and scanner donations, veterinary student scholarships, search and rescue group grants, natural disaster relief, and our many other charitable programs. Learn more
