Q: Can anyone with a scanner access my contact information from the chip?
A: Microchips carry only a unique identification number, not your personal contact details. If your pet gets lost and is taken to a veterinary clinic or animal shelter, your pet will be scanned for a microchip to reveal his/her unique ID number. That number will be called into the microchip company, and you will be contacted using the contact information we have on file. It is vital to keep your contact information up to date so that you can be reached. Your contact information will only be given to the finder of your lost pet if you have given the company consent to do so.
Pet Travel Question: Does my cat need a microchip? | PetRelocation
I have several means by which someone can locate me if either one of my beloved dogs should get lost.
I have tags on their collars all the time. The tags have my name, 2 phone #s, and says that the dog has a microchip.
They both are micro chipped and are registered. I have had them scanned at the vet’s office and verified that the chip is registered properly. Both dogs are licensed. Please do whatever you can do for your pet before it gets lost because trying to do this after the fact provides little benefit.

Q. Why should I microchip my pet?
A. A microchip is a permanent form of identification that can never be lost, altered, or destroyed. The SPCA for Monterey County has successfully reunited pets who traveled hundreds of miles away or pet that were lost for over a year before being found. A pet can slip out of a collar but they can never slip out of a microchip.
