Team efforts are the best! Help us help those who need it!
Thankfully, Chicago Animal Care and Control reached out to us at #MicrochipHuntersIL for help finding the owner of this cute little guy because both phone numbers on the microchip were disconnected.
Susan T. started with an email to one of the two registered owners. She got a response, but no answers from the "owner" as to what to do with "Tailspin." Ugh!
After researching, I then contacted a phone number which turned out to be the sister of the registered owner. The sister told me he was given to someone and his new name is Peso. She was kind enough to contact the new owner, Danielle, for me and have her call me. Danielle called me right away, and told me she was looking for Peso like crazy. She said she would get over to CACC right away after work.
I had to give Danielle the sad news that she couldn't pick Peso up until the stray hold was over unless she had a signed letter from the registered owner, or an email from them directly to CACC, neither of which she was able to get. So...Peso had to wait until the stray hold was up to go home. It was five very long days for her leaving him there.
Today was the day! I spoke to Danielle and she was so happy that Peso could go home, but asked me if it would be OK to pick him up on Tuesday, when she got paid. This message was relayed to Susan T., the director, and Lost Dogs Illinois paid the redemption fee so this sweet dog could go home. He had been there long enough. Happy holidays and welcome home Peso - you are loved.
"Thank you so much I really appreciate you helping me get my dog back. I'm so happy."
