A happy ending for one lost pet

Now this is a story I can get used to! A resident posted a nice story today on the Echo Elysian Neighborhood Council Forum about a “Jindo” mix that she found late last month. Here’s her story:

I found a Jindo mix on the 19th and took her to Lacy Street [North Central Shelter]. The dog was scanned and no chip was found. I monitored the dog on line, but no one was coming to claim her. It didn’t add up to me, since the dog had an expensive collar, was in good shape, had been spayed, no fleas. I didn’t really want to foster Jindo mix.

I called after her available date to check her status and found out that her owner had come to pull her out, (let’s call the owner Laura), but they couldn’t release to Laura because when they took her in the back to microchip her, a chip was actually found with a completely different persons information on it. Apparently Laura had found the dog a month ago, but did not take her to the pound. The info on the chip was outdated, a letter was sent to the person on the microchip, they did not come for the dog, so now this girl has been pulled and is happily home with Laura.

Yea!!!! A happy outcome! The microchip is now updated and this girl is back with the person who really loves her. And I’m writing all this just to say that sometimes taking a dog to the pound does have a happy ending.

Of course, the question of why the chip wasn’t found on the first scan is concerning.

Thank you for your story! It’s also a reminder that it’s really important if you do have to take an animal to the shelter, you take time out of your busy schedule to make sure it gets to a home as we certainly don’t want any pets euthanized unnecessarily. A little personal time and effort goes a long way! But always remember – if you can hold on to the pet and find its owner, that’s always a safer bet.

I had an experience recently taking a dog I found wandering the Echo Park streets late at night to the same North Central Shelter, and things turned out great for him too. You can read about that experience here.

And, as always, support your four-legged friends in Echo Park by adopting through, donating to, fostering for, or volunteering at the Echo Park Animal Alliance!

    Just right points?I’d word that as anyone who truly doesn’t write on blogs a lot (if truth be told, this can be my first put up), I don’t assume the term ‘lurker’ may be very changing into to a non-posting reader. It’s not your fault the least bit , however most likely the blogosphere may get a hold of a better, non-creepy name for the ninety people that experience reading the content .
