Arizona was adopted from us in March 2017. He was a nervous kitty and somehow escaped the house. Despite the frantic owner placing posters through the neighborhood they were unable to locate him. On January 2nd, 2018 he was presented to be neutered at our onsite Companion Animal Hospital by a kind person that had been feeding him as part of her colony and providing shelter for him. To our surprise he had a microchip and because his information was current and up to date his thankful family came to claim on the same day!
Chewy (not pictured) was adopted from us almost three years ago to the date. Unfortunately he managed to escape the house as well. His caring owner had been looking for him for over a year. He was also presented to our Companion Animal Hospital on January 2nd and upon examination a microchip was found. His owner was ecstatic to have him back after such a long time.
