Kaitlin found a husky in Powell, Tennessee. When the AVID microchip was scanned and looked up, it wasn't registered but backtracked to Kane County Animal Control in Illinois. Kane County wasn't able to leave a voicemail at the number they had for the owner, and the second number didn't work. They even confirmed with his vet that this was his phone number.
Microchip hunters was tagged and messaged after reading Kaitlin's post about this, and Kaitlin filled the form out for microchiphelp.com
When pulling up the microchip information, I saw that it was registered to a second company very recently. I was able to get owner information from this registration, and the owner texted me back right away. I asked where he got the dog and he told me from a shelter in Knoxville. I was nervous about this, so contacted Kane County again to confirm the information that Kaitlin had.
The numbers for the previous owner didn't work, but when I pulled up his information, his current address was in Knoxville. I found a family member still living in Illinois, and she answered my text. She had the original owner of Luna call me, and they confirmed they had rehomed Luna. They were relieved that she was adopted and that the new family was looking for her.
Thank you Kaitlin for getting BELLA home, her new family was really worried, and didn't sleep all night looking for her. They had a husky before and know how they love to run, and said they will be more careful. Lost Dogs Illinois will send her new family an ID tag for her collar too! Her family said, "she is too excited for a picture, but she is home."
Welcome home Bella!
