Updating animal microchip information
Anita did provide new information when the family moved. It turns out Chewie had been spotted walking along a road and was picked up by a good Samaritan.
In April 2012, she received a call from Home Again stating, “We have your dog.” “I told them, ‘you must be mistaken. The pet lover did the right thing, having Chewie scanned for a microchip at a local shelter.
My dog is right here,'” Baumgardner recalls, referring to Jack. Because his registration information was up to date, Home Again was easily able to contact Anita.
