I would just like to acknowledge and thank you for the following:
1. Your staff member Katie for being so helpful and responsive. She went beyond her duty and found out that my second dog was registered on another registry and gave me their number to check with them….I have also had similar excellent service from CAR in the past when I have needed to update my details.
2. The new email sent on the anniversary of pet registration with CAR that reminds people to ensure their records are accurate – what a good idea and it reminds everyone to ensure that their details are up to date - what a good idea – so thankyou for that as generally it is like a “set and forget” thing.
I have made a donation to your organisation and included a photo of Reggie.
On Christmas 2006 we got our little British Short Hair kitten, Rocket. She was an indoor cat and loved running up and down the hallway at lightning speed. She was loved by all but, as she got older, she developed a very nasty habit of peeing in my Dad's shoes!! This was an obvious sign Rocket and my Dad did not get on. Four years later, in 2010, we reluctantly moved Rocket outside because my Dad was tired of buying new shoes. Since she had been an indoor cat her whole life she totally hated this new situation! So after one week she ran away. She was gone for two and half years!
Dr Scott Ison of Deniliquin Veterinary Clinic has implanted the microchip into the 2 millionth animal to be recorded on the National animal registry, Central Animal Records. Snookie is a Great Dane-cross pup who was implanted as part of a litter of 12 puppies and was found to be "Pet Number 2,000,000" on the nationally-accredited animal registry. Like many veterinary clinics and animal welfare groups throughout Australia, Deniliquin Veterinary Clinic have been implanting Trovan microchips registered with Central Animal Records for many years! Central Animal Records was the first national microchip registry in Australia and provides a 24 hours per day, 7 days per week animal recovery service for lost or stolen companion animals including not only dogs and cats, but also horses, birds and even reptiles! And, amazingly, Central Animal Records has now been responsible for reuniting over 500,000 lost or injured animals with their owners!
On Tuesday April 2nd 2013 there was a serious motor vehicle accident on the Hume Highway near Benalla VIC. A car and dog trailer carrying 6 award winning Chinese Crested Dogs was hit by a semi trailer. All 6 dogs escaped. Five have been found and are recovering well, however one young girl named Cyan is still missing.
The area near the accident scene has been extensively searched to no avail. Several media outlets have been contacted, door knocks have been conducted, flyers handed out and posted in several places in nearby towns. Social media pages are buzzing with her story.
She may have travelled a vast distance, or perhaps been picked up by a passing motorist. We are trying to do everything we can to help Cyans story reach a wider audience.
Cyans owners are distraught, as are her doggy pals that just want their friend home.
She is microchipped and all her details are current.
