Pet Supplies Plus – the largest and most trusted pet retail franchise in the United States – has announced it will be celebrating this year’s National Pet ID Week from April 17 – 23 with discounts and free deals for pet owners. Neighbors will be offered discounted microchipping services at select locations and free name identification tags with the purchase of a dog or cat collar at all stores. During the promotion, pet owners have the opportunity to receive a $15 microchipping services voucher with any Pet Supplies Plus purchase – making it a fraction of the usual cost.
Throughout National Pet ID Week, select Pet Supplies Plus stores will partner with VIP Petcare, the national veterinary care platform of PetIQ, to offer microchipping vouchers to neighbors with any in-store purchase made April 17 – 23, 2022, while supplies last. Each voucher offers a $15 microchipping service through VIP Petcare and is valid through June 6th, 2022.
In addition, all Pet Supplies Plus locations will offer a free pet ID tag (up to a $10.98 value) with an in-store purchase of any cat or dog collar purchased during National Pet ID Week.

For locations that specifically offer microchipping services and the discounted vouchers, search for locations with VIP Petcare clinics.
The American Humane Association reports that one out of three pets become lost at some point in their lifetime. It is crucial for pet owners to understand their best opportunity to have a pet return home safely is by ensuring they’re microchipped and have an identification tag. Pet Supplies Plus has partnered with VIP Petcare to make this essential procedure more affordable and accessible.
- Over 9 million companion animals are admitted to shelters in the U.S. every year and many of these are euthanized because their owners cannot be found.
- Microchipped pets are 2.5 times more likely to be returned to their owners.
- Dogs without microchips are returned to their owners about 22 percent of the time but microchipped dogs are returned more than 50 percent of the time.
“We view each pet and family in communities across the nation as an extension of our company’s family which is why offering this service is so important to us,” said Chris Rowland, Chief Executive Officer of Pet Supplies Plus. “We are proud to play a role in ensuring each pet can return home safely if lost and hope this program provides greater awareness about microchipping and pet ID tag services to current and future neighbors.”
