This was a blessing for me too.
When Chicago Animal Care and Control got Honey in, she was wearing an ID tag with her name and phone number, but the number was disconnected. She also had a rabies tag from Vetco in Texas, but they would not provide CACC the owner information. Instead, they said they would call and give the owner the message to contact CACC. CACC sent this to Microchip Hunters for help, hoping we could find owner information from the phone number on the ID tag.
I did find some information, but decided to call the Vetco in Texas too. They told me that they were unable to reach the owner with the number they had on file, and I asked if the number they had on file was the same number we had from the tag. They confirmed it was. I then gave them the name I found connected to this number, and they were also able to confirm this was correct. I had hope!
I wasn't having luck until I tried a phone number to someone else at the address shared. It was her mom! She told me her daughter was going to be so happy to get this news, and that she was looking for Honey.
Latika called me from her new phone number, and was crying. I knew this was the kind of crying that happens when a family has been missing their dog for some time. She let me know that she had someone watching Honey last summer when she was pregnant, and that Honey got out.
" I have been looking for her for months. Just said to my mom 2 days ago I wish I can find my dog and here today you gave me the biggest blessing I've been waiting for. Thank you sooo much you don't understand how much you've made my day. "
Latika made arrangements, and picked Honey up today. We are so thankful Honey still had that ID tag on...even outdated, it got her home.
