Lost a Pet? Found with “Just 1 Call”
Revolutionary, 2nd Generation, pet recovery system where the phone number to call can be read on the implanted PELIT® microchip, no contact searching needed.
- Once the microchip is implanted in the pet, the recovery database in the veterinary hospital or shelter is automatically activated by scanning the implanted PELIT®.
- Anyone finding a lost pet with the AniCare PELIT® can now contact the correct recovery database with “Just 1 Call” to the implanting veterinary hospital or shelter.
- In the more traditional manner the microchip is also registered in the International Found Animal database to facilitate the safe return of traveling pets.

What is the difference between the AniCare 2nd Generation “Just 1 Call” system and other pet identification systems used for pet recovery?
A. An RFID tag number on anything, including pets, is like a license plate on a car in that it only provides a unique identifier. However, the license plate is issued by a specific state or province which keeps a record of the car and its owner. 1 st Generation Pet identification systems work with at least one of the numerous database registries maintaining a record of the pet owner’s name and contact information at the time of implanting the microchip and are
to be updated by the owner.
B. The 2nd Geneeration “Just 1 Call” system provides both the unique RFID number and the necessary telephone number for the Veterinary Hospital or Shelter where the pet received its microchip. They have the initial records and any more recent records including the current name and contact information for the pet owner. Each of these databases take the place of the issuing state or province in the license plate analogy. These decentralized databases provide less waiting on hold and a more direct connection with a pet owner.
Why haven’t phone numbers been placed on RFID implants and been read from them in the past?
A. AniCare Systems and its sister company, I.D.ology, have built and sold RFID readers and implant microchips for over 25 years and had never thought to record recovery information on the microchip even though we knew that certain microchips would have the space for additional numbers in the memory. Loading the veterinary hospital telephone number on each sterile microchip prior to shipment is a time consuming, technological labor. As such the general management of microchip suppliers would likely look elsewhere for product and process improvements.
B. “Just 1 Call” technology is a 2nd Generation and somewhat advanced from the standard chips and readers used by veterinarians to microchip and read the standard pet implants. AniCare Systems has used its experience and insight to build implant PELITs® specifying how they are to be programmed as well as to specify the reader hardware setup and programming to enable the rapid display of both the unique pet ID number as well as 2 phone numbers that are preloaded on each microchip by the AniCare System staff. The technology and system for the “Just 1 Call” AniCare System is in a Patent Pending status because of its uniqueness.
Why hasn’t the veterinarian’s office management software been used for finding the lost pets in the past?
A. Currently there is no way to determine in which veterinary hospital the records for the lost animal are kept. So a person finding a lost animal and taking it to a veterinary practice with a RFID microchip reader would also need to canvas several veterinary clinics and there might be 15-20 within the 25 mile radius from where the pet was found. Various organizations set-up centralized databases to reference these identifiable animals for any caller. Now, there are numerous databases in which any given animal may be registered so this solution with a central database has encountered issues as it was scaled up to satisfy the nationwide need to locate lost pets.
B. The “Just 1 Call” AniCare system is 2nd Generation Technology using the existing decentralized database located in each veterinary hospital and shelter to locate a lost pet by providing the phone number of that hospital on each AniCare “J1C” microchip PELIT® that the hospital issues. Given the unique microchip number the veterinary hospital receptionist can search the client listing to find the pet owner and the medical history of the animal. This efficient quick system was not possible until both veterinary practices and shelters had backtracking software available.
How is the security of the pet owner impacted differently with the “Just 1 Call” system?
A. Many general database systems will provide the telephone number of the pet owner to the caller who says they have found the lost pet. Then the conditions and location for the pet’s return are left to the communication between these 2 individuals. Sometimes the pet owner posts pictures and their phone number on street corners and in grocery stores which again leaves the pet exchange location up to the two individuals. In making these phone numbers and exchange sites available to strangers an owner of a lost pet can have some very real concerns about their safety and security in working out the return of their pet.
B. With “Just 1 Call” the pet exchange can be easily supervised by the veterinary staff or the shelter without the pet owner needing to reveal their identity in any way. That is one reason why the pet owner’s registry card with the RFID Number is called a Social Security Card for your pet.
What is included in a 2 nd Generation RFID ID system?
Second Generation microchips comply with the ICAR Standards for unique and locked data storage while enabling the entry of further information on the microchip. All stored information must comply with the 11784-11785 international standards. All information must be readable by an 11785 protocol reader with sufficient data display space to read and display the entire encrypted message on the microchip which on AniCare PELITs® will be 2 recovery phone numbers.
AniCare Systems uses the backward compatible software in most veterinary practices and shelters such as Cornerstone™ and 24PetWatch™ to link the pet ID number to the registered pet owner.
Thus, the 2nd Generation microchip PELITs® from AniCare Systems complete the recovery loop from pet ID to owner ID and owner contact. With the veterinary clinic or shelter performing the ID link the pet family’s security is also maintained.
