One random Friday, I returned to my office from a meeting to see my cell phone blinking that it had a message. Casually, I dialed into my voicemail to hear a message from our local animal shelter. It seems both of our dogs, Abbie and Molly, were at the animal shelter waiting to be picked up. As I returned the call my heart was in my throat. I talked to the animal service officer where he relayed the story of our dogs'' day.
Apparently, Abbie and Molly had tunneled out of our fenced yard and taken themselves on an adventure. The dogs walked about a mile away from our house and were found running in and out of traffic in a five lane street. A very kind lady stopped to help our little dog girls. But, when she tried to contact us the only number on the collars had been disconnected (we transitioned to have only cell phones recently). Without the ability to contact me, the kind lady took our girls to the local animal shelter. At the animal shelter, the officers noticed that each of them had their HomeAgain tag on their collars. The officer scanned Abbie''s and Molly''s microchips to determine how to get them home.
After hearing this story, I was so grateful that we had signed up with HomeAgain. Without HomeAgain, we wouldn''t have found out they had escaped and may have even lost our dog girls. HomeAgain ensured Abbie and Molly came home to their family.
