German Shepherd-OregonMy wife and I bought an AKC German Shepherd three months ago and named her Roxi. Over the months Roxi has not only become a major part of our family, but our lives as well, as she brings much joy and happiness to each of our family members. I hesitated to pay the extra money for the recovery program when I registered Roxi with the LostMyPet, because we don't have a lot of money but, I couldn't be happier that I did because Roxi, being a pup found her way out of a fenced in yard. After looking for her for hours, we had to give up because we looked every where yet found her nowhere. We were all sitting around sad as we missed her and even talked about the possibility that we may never get her back but then the phone rang and it was the LostMyPet recovery operator with news that someone had found her and had seen the LostMyPet Recovery number on her collar tag. They called with the information for us as to where to pick her up. That call brought joy once again to our house as we got Roxi back and we are not only grateful for the LostMyPet Recovery Program but for the people who take the time to call the number and make the program work. Thank you for such a great program and thank all of you who call the Recovery Program when you find a lost dog because, it is you the caller, who really make this program work. Thank you!
Bichon Frise-California/ArizonaBo, our male Bichon Frise, was rescued from a family who could not contend with his "run away" behavior. He is now microchipped, and tagged with the LostMyPet info. We keep a tight watch on him....but still he gets away, on occasion. We live in Arizona and California but the fact that my contact number is my cellphone, gives a quick recovery time, every time. Thank you for such a great service.
Whippet-CaliforniaTHANK YOU! Tonight, at about 7:45 PM - PDT, I rec'd a call from LostMyPet to tell me our 13 year old Whippet had been FOUND! We hadn't realized she was gone. Apparently, she nudged the side yard gate open while my Husband was finishing up his gardening & out she went. A Whippet, even a teenaged one, can cover an amazing amount of ground in a very short time which is a real concern at dusk when the area coyotes are hungry. We were thrilled to have her back home and when your Rep told us the family that found her had a difficult time reading the ID # on the tag, we immediately ordered a new tag! Our dog(s) have been microchipped for years & this is the first time we've needed your help.
Cocker Spaniel-CaliforniaOur home was broken into on 10/20/08 and our dog was stolen. We did everything in our power to find him and had many friends and family members searching for him. We refused to give up because we loved him so much. Thanks to his micro-chip he was finally taken into a police station and scanned. It took a couple of months but we are so happy that he is finally "HOME" and "SAFE". My family and I would like to Thank You for your service and what you do. When I called and reported him stolen the gentleman on the line was so caring and compassionate. We are very grateful for your service. Thanks again!!
Domestic Long Haired Cat-North CarolinaI found my cat! I received a call from a Vet. 205 miles away in Charleston, SC. My cat, Flurry, has a chip and they scanned it and called. Me and a friend of mine flew down in his private plane and got her. She had evidently gotten out when my friend brought over his dog for me to keep in my back yard. We think she climbed up under his SUV on the spare tire (for fear of the dog) and rode all the way from Pinehurst to Raleigh (NC) and then Raleigh to Charleston, SC. Unbelievable! I searched for days and days in Pinehurst and even Raleigh to no avail. She evidently did not get out from under the SUV while it was parked in Raleigh for 1.5 hours. She then managed to live in Charleston for 1.5 months until found and brought in. -I am thankful she had that chip!!!!
