2022 Illinois/Midwest Microchip Help Statistics
Our Microchip Hunters Illinois group (and Midwest states) had a tremendous year! Thank you for asking for help!!!
In 2022, we received 560 dead end microchip and tag cases!
Of the 560 cases submitted, we reached 423 families, or 75.5%. This includes those microchips that had no owner information to be found (this could be because the facility/rescue didn't keep/find records, cannot share records, or because it is a microchip that has no traceable manufacturer). Of all cases we had owner information for, we reached owners over 77% of the time!
Though we had our share of owners who were unable to claim their pets, we were able to help reunite 269 dogs and cats (49%) that may not have made it home otherwise!
Thank you to all the animal control facilities, police departments, shelters, rescues, vet offices, and Good Samaritans that submitted to us! Also, thank you to all those that recommended us! We appreciate your trust in our group!
These dogs and cats belong home. Let's keep these families together!!!
