Microchip Hunters at www.microchiphelp.comreached these pets' families so they could get home. These reunions never get old. Please let microchip hunters help you when you have a 'dead-end' microchip. Pets like these mean to world to these families!
Rocky, the Rottweiler was adopted at 6 months old, and is now 7 years old. He was at Chicago Animal Care and Control with a microchip that had outdated phone numbers for the owner. Microchip Hunters were able to find a family member through facebook, and arrangements were made for Rocky to go home.
Triton the tripod ended up at the Chicago Police Department, again with microchip information that had outdated phone numbers. Microchip Hunters were able to reach a sister by finding a phone number for her. The sister made contact with her brother's girlfriend to pick Triton up. They were new to the area, and so glad he was safe.
Mikey the senior cat, was found and held by a good samaritan. She called Avid to let them know this senior cat was found. Avid tried all 3 phone numbers and none were current after 15 years. Because of privacy, Avid could not share the owner's name. Microchip Hunters reached the family through facebook, and learned that they lived very close to where Mikey was found. They adopted him 15 years ago from Champaign, IL and he has been with them since.
Another beautiful cat, adopted from the Humane Society of St. Joseph County in Mishawauka, Indiana also made it home. This pretty Tabby had been missing 4 or 5 weeks! The owner was delighted she was found, and will be meeting this weekend to pick her cat up.
Last but not least, is Zeus. Zeus the 8 year old Pitbull Mix was found and taken to the Chicago Police Department. His microchip also had an outdate phone number so they reached out to us for help. Microchip hunters reached the aunt, who called her nephew to share the news where Zeus was. Simultaneously, the 16th district police department also sent 14th district officers to the address on file to notify family! The aunt said "Zeus ran to my nephew as soon as he saw him."
Thank you Chicago Animal Care and Control, Garrido Stray Rescue Foundation, 16th District Chicago Police Department, and these good samaritans Alice and Claudia for going the extra mile to help get these loved dogs and cats home.
