Chicago Animal Care and Control asked Microchip Hunters for help reaching Leo's family. He came in with a rabies tag and an ID tag. One of the numbers was disconnected, and the other no answer. So, I sent a text.
When I received a text back from the owner, she told me Leo disappeared from the yard and she was going to file a lost dog report. She asked if he was ok and where he was. When I told her he was at animal control, and about the fee, she told me they are 'struggling', and that she didn't have the money right now to pay to pick him up. She told me all about her daughter crying that he was gone, and what a great boy Leo is.
Leo is an 8 year old boy, that needed to go home. He has a family that loves him! Lost Dogs Illinois paid the fee, and Leo's family went to CACC as soon as they opened today to pick him up.
They are so grateful to have Leo back home - look how happy the kids are to get him back!
Please help us get dogs like Leo back home where they are loved. Every little bit helps keep families together, and dogs out of shelters.
"My family would like to thank you again"
