CLARKSTOWN, N.Y. -- Lost pets will be easier to reunite with their owners thanks to an anonymous donation of a microchip reader to the Clarkstown Police Animal Control.

The Home Again Pocket Pet Microchip Reader detects, reads and identifies all microchips implanted in pets.

Microchips are tiny transponders, about the size of a grain of rice, that are painlessly implanted just under the pet’s skin, usually between the shoulder blades. Each microchip contains a registration number and the phone number of a national registry.

The scanner reads the radio frequency of the chip and displays this information of the owner so the department can reunite lost pets with the owners quickly and efficiently.

"We highly recommend the use of microchips in your pets. Speak to your veterinarian about this technology to protect your pets," said Officer Pat McCoy-Coleman.
