Microchip Hunters were tagged on a post for a found dog with an unregistered microchip. She was taken to a Rescue for the stray hold, and they were unable to get any information for the owner.
The rescue messaged the microchip number to us at microchip help, and I was able to find the owner information. The outgoing message matched the owner on file. This was a landline and went back to 2013.
I began researching to find relatives as I saw the owners were seniors, and reached a nephew that told me that his Aunt passed away a year ago and his uncle was not able to care for Cricket by himself. The nephew gave me their son's number as the son assisted in rehoming Cricket to the family's neighbor!
I spoke to the son, and he was able to get in touch with the neighbor family that took Cricket in. They were happy to get this call and were looking for her everywhere. She is a runner!
Cricket is now home, and the microchip information will be transferred, along with getting an ID tag for her collar.
Thank you to our fans for recommending microchip hunters (www.microchiphelp.com) on found dog posts and to the rescue for getting us the information to help you! Teamwork!!!
