I'm pretty sure it is for the advanced services and the dog will still be in the database if you decline them.
We just got our dog and cat chipped about 4 months ago and all this was in the brochure. I was under the impression that you had to pay an annual fee regardless to keep them active in the database.Originally Posted By: GSDBESTK9Weird!! My Yorkie has had a HomeAgain chip for the past 7 years and I've never received a letter like this.
