Thank you to Bridget, for submitting this information to Microchip Hunters for help! This cutie went to P.A.W.S. Tinley Park and was picked up by his owner from the microchip.
"Yes, the owner called us at the shelter today. He came from Wisconsin this evening and got Chewy. He was very happy to see Chewy and had given the dog to a friend 8 years ago but has no clue the whereabouts now. Chewy was actually very happy to see him! After all these years!"
This case was not simple to solve. The key was getting the owner information from the implanter. It was minimal information, but it still allowed microchip hunters to find his current phone number.
Welcome back home Chewy - we are glad you were so happy to be reunited!
Chicago Animal Control tried to reach Man Man's family from the information on file from his microchip, but the number was disconnected.
Microchip Hunters went to work, and was able to connect to his owner much to her surprise, through facebook messenger, where they learned Man Man was missing for 4 years. CACC emailed the owner to pick him up the next day!
Welcome home Man Man! #MicrochipsWork!
Thank you to the 22nd district police department and Michelle P for scanning Scooby's microchip, and sending it to Microchip Help.
The microchip for Scooby was never registered, but the Nebraska Humane Society had his adoption information from 2007.
The number was outdated, and when looking the name up, Chicago addresses came up. Her name, however, showed that she had passed away in 2017.
I contacted the first name that came up to all the same addresses both in Nebraska and Chicago, to see if they knew who he currently belonged to, and was told, "that was my wife, and Scooby went missing from me a little over a year ago. I looked for him for a long time." She asked where he was, and not even an hour later, he was picked up. She is very happy he is home, but said he has really aged in the last year. He is deaf and possibly completely blind.
Welcome home Scooby. You have been missed.
*extra special thanks to Sissy from the 22nd for cutting his nails*
When Chicago Animal Control couldn't reach Charlie's family from the information on file through his microchip, they sent it to Microchip help.
The owner on file had numbers that weren't working, and the only information found was out of state. When searching relatives, Chicago addresses came up, so I sent a couple of texts and heard back pretty quickly.
The information on the microchip is for the daughter who is in the armed forces, and out of state. Charlie, the Rat Terrier, took off after a rat, and her mom spent the day looking for Charlie. She was at work, so her other daughter called me back and made arrangements with Chicago Animal Control to pick him up! Luckily they were able get the sister's authorization by email quickly; they didn't want to leave him there. He has been with the family for 12 years.
"I can't thank you enough for helping me bring Charlie back home. He was happy to see his brothers ( my kids)."
Thank you Chicago Animal Care and Control for sending this...
Lola, the senior Maltese Mix is home! She was missing for 20 days before she ended up at Chicago Animal Control after taken to the 25th district.
Chicago Animal Control tried to reach the family but the number they had on file from years ago for Lola was disconnected. They sent the chip information to microchip hunters.
I pulled up the information for the microchip, and it showed a registration date of May 6th, along with a note about being missing/stolen on 5/5/2021. Her microchip was implanted in 2010.
I called Lola's family who answered the call! Of course she had a million questions about how she was found, where she was, was she ok, etc. She told me Lola disappeared on 5/5 and that she contacted the chip company the next day. She made arrangements to pick Lola up, and she is home with her family where she belongs.
Welcome home Lola! You are loved!

The little 10 year old Yorkie found in #Chicago and taken to Chicago Animal Control is home safe and sound with the help of microchip hunters.
Pinky's phone number associated to her microchip belonged to someone else. Microchip Hunters were able to help reach the family by emailing the owner on file at her workplace. Her mom was taking care of "Juicy," as they call her, though her name is Pinky, and the daughter wasn't aware she was missing as she is out of town.
Arrangements for someone to pick her up today were made!
