Happy Endings to be Updated Soon
It's been a long time since we added new stories of our adopted cats and dogs but we hope to have new ones to read within the week.
Reuniting Lost Pets with Families
A number of our shelter volunteers like FindToby on Facebook and we just had a success story last week. A Chihuahua was reunited with his family after his owner posted a lost dog notice on FindToby and one of our volunteers recognized him.
We also had a Beagle reunited with his family through Lostmydoggie.com a few days ago. There is also a website called Lostmykitty.com and both of these operate similar to an Amber Alert for lost children by sending free emails to participants in the same Zip Code.
HomeAgain Pet Rescuers also sends emails about lost pets in your local area. They are a microchip company. A veterinarian can implant a microchip under the skin of a dog or cat which shows a code number leading to owner contact information for the animal. Veterinarians, some rescues and possibly police stations have scanners which can be held over the back of the neck area of the found animal. Scanning is painless/non-invasive and the microchip implant is given as an injection.
