Jericho was found in Manteno. The microchip went back to 2012 and the owner's number and address were no longer current. Animal control tried to connect with Heather but wasn't able, and the finder Deb was told about microchip hunters by her friend Dawn!
She submitted the chip number, and we went to work.
It took a couple days, but I finally reached a family member who let Heather's mom know to contact her, and she shared my number. Heather called and told me she recently moved to the area, and 'Jerry' got out. Heather was happy to hear he was found nearby and was able to pick him up from the shelter he was taken to.
We are happy to hear he is home; Heather told me he was a gift for her daughter 10 years ago!
Thanks Deb for taking Jericho in and sending this to Microchip Help to help get him home. They have sent me a couple of messages today, with photos. They really appreciate all the effort.
