Long lost dog, Georgia, finally reunites with her family from Alva, Lee County after a year of being missing, thanks to her embedded microchip that helped county authorities identify her parents and their corresponding contact details.
After 12 months of being on the streets, Georgia, who was found scrawny but otherwise fine was picked up by a stranger who, in turn, turned her over to the Lee County Domestic Animal Services. Lee County authorities, then, discovered Georgia’s embedded microchip and tracked down her family and their whereabouts through the microchip data link. They, then, got in touch with Georgia’s family and relayed the news.
According to the Lee County Domestic Animal Services, who provides pet microchipping services for ten dollars, the benefits of the procedure far outweigh the cost and is especially helpful to authorities who need information about the lost pet’s family and their contact details in order to ensure safe and fast return.
Also, microchipping services, which can be readily availed at any veterinarian office in the county, is found to improve the chances of finding lost pets by about 54 percent.
“They got her back because somebody did the right thing the second time around and brought her to us,” Karen Fordiani of the Lee County Domestic Animal Services said after reuniting Georgia with her family who was thrilled to see her, “We were able to call them and get their dog back to them.”
Everyone loves a happy ending!
