Fairy Tail Ending At VVAPL Thanks To Microchip

Three years ago in San Bernardino, Bella, a poodle under one year, was in her fenced front yard one minute and gone the next.  After an unsuccessful search of their neighborhood and shelter, Jonathan and his wife were convinced someone took their baby.  As days turned to weeks and then months, all hope of ever seeing their precious girl again was gone.  Fortunately, Bella had something that would prove to be her saving grace…a microchip.

VVAPL Humane Society is a strong proponent of microchipping, which is an easy and inexpensive form of pet identification.  A study in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association noted lost and stolen microchipped pets when found were returned to their owners more often than those without a chip – 22 percent of non-microchipped dogs returned versus 52 percent with chips and less than 2 percent of non-microchipped cats returned versus 38 percent with chips.

A word of caution.  Microchips are only effective if the pet’s microchip is registered and the information is up-to-date.  A pet can’t be returned if the pet’s owner’s information is wrong. It’s also recommended to scan your pet once a year to make sure the microchip is working properly.  

Three years after going missing, Bella ended up at VVAPL.  Thanks to her microchip, with up-to-date information, Jonathan and his wife received a call they never thought would come…

BELLA HAS BEEN FOUND!

Jonathan picked up a matted, dirty Bella.  Although a little timid with him, as soon as Bella saw his wife, she was crazy happy.

Bella won’t leave her mommy’s side.  They are inseparable.  After spending three years wondering what happened to their sweet girl, now they can relax because she’s home.  It’s a fairy tail ending thanks to a tiny microchip.
