#MicrochipHunters received this case from Chicago Animal Care and Control late afternoon on Sunday. I called home again and got the owner information from them. Both numbers of this registered owner, Rita, were disconnected, and CACC needed our help.
Microchip Hunter Anita worked hard on this case for a few days, but wasn't having any luck, so I joined in the search. This senior girl was tugging at my heart, and I knew she still had a couple days left on her stray hold. I decided to try to reach the relatives that I had found, both who came up with California phone numbers and addresses. I left a couple voicemails on a landline, texts, and emails to two family members, explaining why I was calling.
Shortly after, I received a call from Rita's sister, Deidra. Deidra told me that 5 years ago, she had to take her sister with her to California for medical reasons, and that Rita had given Asia to a next door neighbor, Bryan and his family, that said they would take her in and love her. "Rita loved Asia." I asked Deidra if she had the name or number of the neighbor by any chance, and sure enough, she found it!
Of course, the phone numbers Deidra had were not correct any longer, so again, I began my search for this new owner! I made a couple more calls and got an answer from Bryan! He said they had been looking for Asia in the neighborhood for 5 days, and was so relieved with the news that she is ok!
Asia was picked up today by Bryan and his daughter, and you can see how happy they both are in the photo below! They will be transferring the microchip information over to them.
Welcome home sweet Asia girl! You are loved in California and Illinois! Thank you Deidra for helping me find Asia's family! Bryan and his family are grateful!
P.S. I sent the picture to Deidra, and she said, "Thank you so much, Rita will be thrilled to see this. Asia looks so happy..."
