"Maybe you will have better luck"
Attempts were made to catch this little girl running along the highway. She is safe, was taken in by a good samaritan, and posted to a neighborhood page.
This little Bichon Mix was wearing a current rabies tag, and the finder posted, "she is friendly and beautiful; someone I'm sure misses her." Several people attempted to get the owner's information from the Cook County rabies tag but it wasn't in the computer system yet. Vetco issued the rabies, but they had no luck getting information from them either. Thankfully the good samaritan was able to hold on to her, and continued waiting for her owner to find her.
After several days had passed, Microchip Hunters was tagged on the post by Susan D, and the finder sent the numbers from the rabies tag. The finder texted, "we went through that process already (rabies tag research) and we found nothing, but maybe you will have better luck."
We did have better luck. The next morning, I was able to get owner information on this tag, and contacted Diamond's owner Willie Mae.
Willie Mae told me she is wheelchair bound, and her granddaughter was caring for Diamond. She had Diamond in the car and was on her way from Indiana to visit her when they stopped, and she took off. I exchanged information between owner and finder, and Willie Mae got in touch with her granddaughter to let her know, since she is unable to drive and her granddaughter has a car.
Willie Mae called me yesterday after a few days passed, to let me know Diamond still was not home. She wanted her back. She said her granddaughter told her that the finder was busy working, and wasn't able to get her back to them yet. The finder also let me know she works a lot, but that finally would be able to meet today to return Diamond to them.
I was so glad to hear from both the finder and owner today letting me know she is home. Willie Mae is very grateful and said, "bless you and thank you for the work that you do." Thank you finder for doing the right thing, Susan D. for tagging Microchip Hunters, and thank you to all who helped!
Diamond is this woman's best friend.
Welcome home Diamond!
