We recently received an email from a person in New York... Yes New York, USA, advising us that they had found a dog which was microchipped & listed on our database, here in Australia!
They were obviously keen to locate the owner so that the dog, a beautiful 6 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback, could be reunited with them, but unfortunately the owners had not updated their contact details when they had either moved to the USA, or at least, re-homed the dog overseas, so contact with them wasn't possible! Unfortunately, we don't know what happened to this pet after that!
This again highlights the importance of ENSURING THAT YOUR CONTACT DETAILS ARE KEPT UP TO DATE AT ALL TIMES.
Many pet owners don't believe that their pets can escape the confines of their own backyard, but accidents do happen, particularly if tradespeople have been on the property, or kids just simply forget to shut the gate. Because we all know how important your precious pets are to you, we wanted to remind everyone of the importance of updating your contact details - whether it's a complete address change, new mobile number or email address or even if you have re-homed a pet.
