The good news: The found dog turned into your shelter, animal control facility or vet clinic has been scanned and he has a microchip!
The bad news: The microchip reaches a dead end. Either it was never enrolled by the shelter, rescue, vet clinic or owner or it was not updated with current contact information.
But there’s still hope! Lost Dogs of America and Helping Lost Pets have joined forces to provide a FREE service to help. We have assembled a team of trained volunteers who are willing to help track down that microchip. We have tracked down hundreds of owners of dead end microchips. Sometimes we can even track down the owner when the chip is unregistered.
Use the following link to fill out a simple form so that we can assign your “case” to a volunteer. We also encourage you to fill out a report with www.helpinglostpets.com so that the found dog gets as much exposure as possible. Our database now has the largest collection of lost and found pet data in North America.
Fingers crossed that Fido will be home soon thanks to to our dedicated volunteers who will try to find the owner. Here is the link to the website and the form: http://www.microchiphelp.com/
