Adam sent a message to us at #LostDogsIllinois regarding two found dogs in #Peoria. "Shannah was driving down 474 and found them going down the side of the interstate....she turned around and pulled up to them and they jumped into her van." Adam found a kind woman that came to scan the dogs for him. Only one of the dogs was chipped and he sent us the number. Microchip Hunters checked the chip number and it wasn't registered, so they reached out to Tazewell County Animal Control Illinois, who chipped "Maya," by messenger, and they replied right away! Wow, on a Sunday evening! When I called the number from the chip, the outgoing message was another name, so I researched and tried a couple numbers, and found an email for the owner. She called me right away from the email, and was so relieved! I gave her Adam's number, and they are on their way to pick them up! The other dog doesn't belong to this same owner, but both went missing from where Maya was staying. Maya's owner told me "they always stay together" and that the Riley is deaf.
Thanks to Shannah and Adam for all you did to get them home, to the lady that scanned Maya, and to Tazewell County for your quick reply and terrific records!
Welcome home Maya and Riley! Maya's owner will be registering her microchip!
