Do you care about lost dogs and cats? Introducing Scan Lost Animals, Inc. They’re Local and They Scan Lost Pets For Microchips.

Posted on May 25, 2023

Who We Are

We are a non-profit organization offering a free service to the public.  Our organization is run by volunteers throughout the USA.  

What We Do

We scan lost and found animals for microchips during off hours when local facilities offering this service are closed or unavailable. If you found a lost animal, please contact us and post it in our Facebook Group.

How We Do It

Each volunteer uses a universal scanner to locate a microchip on the lost animal.  If a chip is found, we contact the owner to reunite the lost animal with its family.  We can do all this based on tax deductible donations we receive from people like you.

Where we scan

Free Microchip Scanning is available in the following areas.  Please contact us through CHAT in the lower right corner of every page on the website to schedule a same-day appointment whenever possible.
