What is ISO?
resQ® is in compliance with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) frequency standard supported by every major pet welfare organization in the United States, including the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).1
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is comprised of the United States (ANSI) and over 140 other nations that work together to develop compatible technology standards worldwide.
ISO regulates conformity assessment standards for commonly used items such as credit cards, and has developed global standards for microchip technology. These technology standards are helping to reunite lost pets with their owners worldwide.
• In the United States, roughly eight to twelve million pets enter an animal shelter annually.2
• According to the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy (NCPPSP), less than 2% of cats and only 15% to 20% of dogs are returned to their owners.2
More information about the ISO can be found at www.iso.org.

Can any microchip be registered on PetLink? What is the cost to do so?
Any chip can be registered with PetLink.NET. There is no cost with registering your resQ® chip with PetLink. A charge of $16.99 will be applied to other chips being registered with PetLink but no future annual membership fees will be required
How long does it take to register a pet?
It takes approximately 2 minutes to register a pet. Because there is no registration fee, all you have to do is log on to www.PetLink.NET, select the link on the left – Register Your Pet, fill in the basic information like email address, telephone number, species, breed and name. Then submit for registration. If a clinic is registering multiple animals at the same time, the Mass Upload feature can be utilized to reduce time. The Mass Upload feature provides clinics with an online registration sheet that they can send one time to PetLink.NET to register every animal at once. Information on this service and steps to get registered are found within the resQ® resource guide in the articles section.
What should I tell my client to do if they lose their pet?
Contact www.PetLink.NET or 1-877-PetLink. Report their pet missing, make sure their contact information is current and upload a pet photograph. PetLink provides free Lost Pet Posters that pet owners can print off and pass around the community. Each box of resQ® microchips come with a wallet and key chain reminder card. The PetLink contact information can always be by their side.
