Thank you Chicago Animal Control for sending microchiphelp.com the microchip information to work on for a beautiful found red and white Pitbull. Not only was his microchip unregistered, the manufacturer of the microchip sold this microchip to a third party, so had no way of finding out who actually implanted his microchip.
Microchip Hunters called Petkey on Tuesday, and left all the details about the dog, and a direct number to call if the owner should be looking for him.
Wednesday, I got a call! Made my day! Rona was looking for Leo, called the microchip company, and they gave her my contact information! I gave her the information to reclaim Leo from CACC, she had registered the microchip when she called in, and he is picked up and back home!
We often get asked if it is too late to register the microchip. IT IS NEVER TOO LATE! Even if your dog was scanned and they couldn't find you, finder information can be left with the microchip company, and if not scanned yet, registering will get your dog home if scanned in the future! Always call the microchip company when your pet goes missing.
We love microchips, along with current ID tags, they help keep your pets with your family.
Welcome home Leo!
