Thank you #WillCountyAnimalControl for submitting the dead-end microchip to microchip help!
This gorgeous Black Labrador Retriever came into Will County as a stray on March 10th. Petlink had no owner information or implant facility, so I emailed to see if they can research further.
Petlink was able to find the animal shelter in Missouri that microchipped Zeda. Dogwood Animal Shelter in Missouri was able to provide me the owner's name and address, but had no phone number. Zeda was microchipped at a low-cost clinic there, and the owner Cassandra also lived in Missouri.
I only found one number that matched the owner's name, and it didn't belong to her. I began looking up this unique last name in Illinois, and found a match to a male. I called, and was told Cassandra was his daughter and that she lives in Missouri. He told me he would ask her to call me.
Cassandra called me soon after. She was very upset to hear that Zeda was found as a stray, and all the way here, about 7 hours away. She had Zeda as a puppy for over a year, but had to rehome her due to living arrangements. She told me her dad could pick Zeda up for her and hold on to her until she could get her. Her living arrangements now allow for Zeda, and she said, "She is my baby, I am so glad I can have her back. I won't let anyone else have her. She is such a good dog."
I gave both Will County and Cassandra each other's information, and both messaged me today that Cassandra's dad picked Zeda up. Cassandra is very excited to get her baby back home. Thank you dad for picking her up!
Welcome back home Zeda!
