Registering or transferring a Microchip for your AGA dog

HOMEAGAIN CHIP (new/never registered) – The ADOPTER pays $25.00, payable to AGA. Register at http://public.homeagain.com/contact.html. Go to the “READY TO ENROLL SECTION”, click “REGISTER NOW” and complete the form. If you already have a HomeAgain login, you may login and “add a new pet/chip” to your existing profile. At the end of registration the amount owed will show $0.00 as long as the chip has been implanted for less than a year. CAUTION: HomeAgain does not validate chip numbers and will register ANY chip number not already in their database. Be sure to double check your chip number before registering!

HOMEAGAIN CHIP (previously registered) – CANNOT register online. Owner must complete a transfer form and submit it along with a copy of the adoption contract to HomeAgain by mail, email or fax.
