AKC Reunite Giving Back
AKC Reunite is the nation’s largest non-profit pet microchip and recovery service. Our mission is to keep pet microchipping and enrollment affordable, with no annual fees, so more lost pets can find their way home.
Since 1995 our microchips, collar tags and 24/7/365 recovery experts have helped reunite over 400,000 lost pets with their owners. Over five million pets (35+ different species!) are enrolled in the AKC Reunite service.
Canine Support and Relief Fund
After the tragic events of September 11, 2001, the AKC Reunite mission expanded to support animals in need. In early 2002, the Canine Support and Relief Fund was created as a permanent charitable fund to proactively support the needs of volunteer Canine Search and Rescue organizations plus provide our nation’s pets with life saving disaster relief resources during hurricanes, tornados, floods and wildfires.
Beyond the grants from the Canine Support and Relief Fund, AKC Reunite also provides extensive volunteer coordination and direction of corporate sponsorships to provide animals in need with food and supplies.

AKC Pet Disaster Relief
AKC Pet Disaster Relief helps local Emergency Management provide animal care services during the first 72 hours following a disaster… the critical time before FEMA support and services are deployed. Deployment of these trailers will help put an end to post-disaster tragedies have historically affected pet owners, such as: putting themselves in harm’s way to save a beloved pet, or even losing a family pet during a disaster.
