AKC Reunite strives to increase identification of our nation's pets to ensure their safe return. Through microchip and collar tag sales and enrollment in the 24 / 7 /365 recovery service, AKC Reunite fulfills its mission. Additionally, the AKC Pet Disaster Relief program raises funds and provides equipment for pet emergency shelters.

Increase sales of microchips to pet professionals through a qualified, dedicated sales staff. Structure pricing and programs to bring value to pet professionals and encourage enrollment by pet owners. Raise funds through grassroots efforts from AKC dog clubs to fund AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailers.

AKC Reunite has a professional sales staff and 24 x 7 dedicated recovery coordinators to help get lost pets back home. Also, an updated, robust web site allows online enrollment, microchip and collar sales, and online donations to the fund.

Key indicators are microchip sales and pet enrollments. For AKC Pet Disaster Relief, the number of trailers donated to emergency management around the country.

AKC Reunite will monitor progress, reporting microchip sales and enrollments to its Board each month. AKC Pet Disaster Relief progress is monitored and updated on the web site monthly.
