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.
I was relocating for a job from country Shepparton VIC to Perth WA. My cats (x 2 – 8 months and 6 1/2 years) were flown over 1 week before myself – the kitten to a friend and the other to a cattery. Also, I happened to be staying with another friend in Perth for a few months (who has a cat and unable to accommodate mine) as I was waiting to move into another place.
A few days before I was to commence my new job I received a ph call from a vet stating they had my kitten. (all thanks to the microchip and my mobile ph contact). Apparently, my kitten wandered outside from my friends house, unbeknown to them, and the neighbours great Dane chased and mauled her. (these dogs were trained to chase rabbits) The kitten had been lying injured for 24 hours - probably hiding and dragging herself around – until she couldn’t any longer, exhausted.
We would like to thank CAR for reuniting us with our 12 y.o. Jack Russell, Cassie. We live in Arcadia just south of Shepparton, having moved from Melbourne in 2010. We had gone to Tasmania on the 25th January for a wedding, leaving Cassie at home with a trusted neighbour feeding her and checking on her. The yard is secure. As we were leaving our accommodation on 28th January to return home I had a call from an operator at CAR. Cassie had somehow got out and been picked up about 10kms away darting in and out of traffic on the Goulburn Valley Highway.
