Home at Last! The found Pitbull Mix from#Chicago #IL is home safe and sound! His name is Thor and he was happy to see his family!
Thank you to the Garrido Stray Rescue Foundationand the 16th District Chicago Police Departmentfor posting Thor found with us on#LostDogsIllinois, and also for sharing the microchip information to #MicrochipHunters to help find his family!
When I looked up Thor's microchip information, it came up as an UNREGISTERED Avid microchip, but I saw that Delta Animal Hospital was listed as the implant facility. Being Labor Day, I called Delta Animal Hospital assuming I wouldn't get anyone to answer today, but would leave a message that we were looking for owner information on this sweetheart. so we would hear first thing in the morning. I let Garrido's know this too.
Just a few minutes later, I received a call from Delta Animal Hospital. They checked on the microchip, and said they would try and contact the owner and call me back. They left a message for the owner, but called me back and gave me the owner information just in case. I too left a vm and text to the number provided.
I went to post this to our microchip hunter group, and when I put the number into Avid again, it showed that the owner just registered the microchip! I tried a second number that was listed and Stephanie answered that phone number right away! She said she realized that her family probably never registered the chip, so decided she would do it now. I heard back from the first number I called too - and let her know I had spoken to Stephanie.
It is NEVER too late to check if your microchip is registered or up to date! You never know when someone will check for information again!
Thor was picked up at the 16th District Chicago Police Department, who always keeps our found pets safe and cared for. Stephanie texted me, "My husband went to pick up Thor. He told me Thor was very scared. Thanks again for your help."
Found 9/1/2019; Reunited 9/2/2019. Welcome home Thor!
