About AKC Reunite – Formerly AKC Companion Animal Recovery (AKC CAR)

AKC Reunite, formerly AKC Companion Animal Recovery (AKC CAR), founded in 1995, is North America’s largest not for profit pet ID and recovery service.

Microchips and Pet ID

AKC Reunite is committed to Pet Identification, specifically ensuring pets have two forms of ID, a collar or pet id tag and a microchip (or tattoo), to aid in their quick identification and return home if they get lost.


With your help, AKC Reunite will maintain its position as the national recovery database of choice in the companion animal community. AKC Reunite offers an incredible value for its microchip and ID service, with proceeds supporting the needs of the animals that inhabit and enrich our lives.

Giving Back

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, the AKC Pet Disaster Relief program, and our many other charitable programs.
