Microchipping Question... please help
Now all of my dogs are microchipped. But here's my question. Harley and Maverick (technically) came from a shelter and rescue group respectively.
I adopted Harley in 2009 and I've been updating his Microchip information since them, number changes, moves, etc. Now all of a sudden they won't let me update and they said that the first 60 days was free but now I have to pay $17.95 a year. Ummm... since when? Naturally Maverick has the same microchip and they won't even let me register his because Harley is past his 60 days. Now JUST updated Harley last year and nothing was a problem then.
Kahlua's microchip was paid for when I put it in and that was for life, only $19.95... I actually think it was less than that since I paid for it when it was put in and not later online, but either way $19.95 for life is wayyyy better than $17.95 a year per dog. Kahlua's chip is through PetLink/Res-q pet tracking system. I also have her registered with AKC CAR.
So now what? Is there another way I can go and register Harley and Maverick or am I stuck with 24petwatch? If I would have known this before Maverick was microchipped I would have never have had him Microchipped with that chip. He's going in for Neutering the 16th and I've thought about having the chip removed and another one put in, but I don't know if you can even do that.
I hope this all makes sense and isn't too confusing. I'm trying to pack for when I leave tomorrow and get ready and deal with this. Also, I haven't let Harley run around with wrong info, I just won't have my cell phone up in Alaska so I was changing the contact info to my Aunt, but I can't do that apparently without paying.
