'Noe' was adopted out by a rescue years ago. He is over 14 years old. The microchip information was outdated - the owner's phone number was not working, so the vet in Harvard that scanned for the microchip called the rescue. The rescue had the same information for the owner, Lisa, so the finder took 'Noe' home. The owner's address was in Schaumburg.
The rescue reached out to a Lost Dogs Illinois volunteer, who messaged Microchip Hunters.
I (Microchip Hunters) spent the majority of the day trying to track a current number down for Lisa, along with emails. I also tried various family members. It wasn't until later in the evening that I finally reached Lisa's son, who thanked me and gave me her current phone number. Lisa now lives in Capron, close to Harvard.
Lisa told me she has had many phone numbers since she adopted Noe, whom she renamed to Baby. Her mother recently passed away and she took this number over, so now has her childhood phone number, so it will not be changing. She updated the registration to this new phone number.
Since the vet was closed when I reached her, she had to wait until the next day to hear back so the vet could get in touch with the finder. Lisa was worried, but was reunited with Baby.
Here he is back at home where he belongs; welcome home Baby.
