Pomeranian Reunited with Family after Nearly 2 Years Thanks to Microchip
Baby, a 5-year-old Female Pomeranian that disappeared from a Corona home in early 2018, was recovered by Corona Animal Shelter Control Officers. Now, thanks to the microchip implanted in the dog, Baby and her family have been reunited.
On Thursday, February 6th, Animal Control Officers were dispatched to a call for service, leading Animal Control Officers to Baby, who had been microchipped by the Corona Animal Shelter in 2017. Officers contacted the owner and learned she had been missing for nearly two years. Baby’s family quickly visited the Animal Shelter to take Baby home.
“When Baby escaped from our fence, our family did everything in our power to locate her. We looked everywhere for her and shared her picture on social media but were never able to find her,” said Corona resident Andrew Arreola. “We’re so glad we decided to microchip her. Without the microchip, we would never have reunited.”
The Corona Animal Shelter offers microchipping services to the City of Corona’s residents for only $15.00 on Wednesdays, from 1 to 5 p.m. Microchipping is permanent pet identification. The process is simple, and the chip is designed to quickly identify pets and reunite them with their owners should they become lost. Most pets wear collar tags imprinted with their name and the phone number of their pet parent, but only a microchip provides permanent ID that cannot fall off, be removed, or become impossible to read.
