Snowball showed up at Chicago Animal Care and Control on March 16th, with just a rabies tag. He had no microchip, and no ID tag. Cook County was able to give them the owners first initial, last name, and outdated phone number, but CACC thought maybe this tag was on the wrong dog, because he was described as white and his name was "Snow."
After a week passed, CACC submitted it to#MicrochipHunters. I wasn't able to find a working phone number or email address for the owner given to CACC from the rabies tag, so started researching family. Thankfully, the owner's niece called me back after I left a voicemail and text regarding a found dog. She said "Snowball's family is looking for him." She also let me know that the owner had passed away, but that his son would be to CACC right away to pick him up. I let her know they were closed for the evening, but that he could go tomorrow.
Zac called me today, and told me he was in the parking lot at CACC. I was so happy to hear this, and he was so thankful that we contacted him. He said he takes care of Snowball, and that they missed him so much.
Thank you for reaching out to us to help find Snowball's family. It took an old rabies tag to get this 9 year old sweetheart home.
