Terms and ConditionsWelcome
Welcome to getmehome.ca (the "Site"), a web Site owned and operated by Merial Canada Inc. ("Merial"). The Site provides a pet registration service, through which lost pets may be reunited with their owners (the "Registration Service").

How the Registration Service Works
When your pet was vaccinated against rabies, you may have received from your veterinarian a "getmehome.ca tag" supplied by Merial. The tag displays a tag number and the telephone number of your pet's veterinary clinic and is meant to be affixed to your pet's collar. By submitting the tag information and your personal contact information to the Site via an electronic registration application form, you can register your pet with the Site. If your pet is subsequently lost and someone finds it, that person can obtain your contact information by visiting the Site and inputting the tag information. The information should be updated when a new tag is supplied by your veterinarian.
Upon submission of the registration application form, your information will be stored in our database and a profile will be created for you. Your user name and password can be used to access your profile and update your information, as necessary. You are fully responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of and all activities that occur under your user name and password.
