CNMBC Provides Micro Chipping Identification
Services to Members and Non-Members
One of the major missions of CNMBC is to prevent any Brittany from being euthanized in our state. A significant part of our efforts involved providing permanent identification to assist in the successful recovery and placement of missing dogs.

On a national level the American Humane Association states that only about 17% of lost dogs and 2% of lost cats ever find their owners. Nearly 20 million pets are euthanized each year because their owners cannot be located.

If your pet is identifiable by being micro chipped there is a much greater chance that it will return to you safely. 
NMBC provides low cost, high quality identification for dogs, cats and other small pets – micro chipping.

Micro Chipping
For the past seven years, CNMBC has providing micro chipping for club members’ and non-club members’ dogs and other pets.
The micro chip is complete with AKC chip registration (nine digit ID) which is automatically included in the AKC CAR (Companion Animal Recovery) registry. This is a legal identifier for dogs, cats, birds and other small animals.

This program maintains a national database and is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. When your lost pet is found, they will be scanned, the number will be called into the AKC-CAR (1-800-252-7894, FAX 1-010-233-1290, e-mail: found@akc.org) and you will be notified immediately.


A microchip provides permanent identification. When you register, you provide information to the AKC-CAR - your contact information, your veterinarian‘s information and an alternate contact. The program personnel will call the other numbers if you cannot be reached. Remember to contact the AKC-CAR if you any of the above information changes.

The micro chip is injected with a syringe-type needed under the skin between the shoulder blades. This is a one-time injection if done properly. Chips have an anti-migration cap to prevent the chip from moving around and possibly becoming loose. This procedure is simple, routine, and painless, and it doesn't require any anesthesia. Your pet simply gets an injection just under the loose skin between the shoulder blades similar to getting vaccinated. Most animals don't react at all. Long term studies have shown that the microchip is very safe for your pets.

The system works! More than 1 ½ million pets are enrolled in the AKC Companion Animal Recovery. Recent statistics report that 126,034 lost pets have been reunited with their owners thanks to this program which has a 100% success rate. Every found pet in this system has been identified.

Costs
Micro chipping for CNMBC members is $15 per dog; for non-members is $25 per dog.
