  • 1.  Locating Owners For Pets with Unregistered Chips, etc.

    Posted 10-25-2021 11:02 AM
    Hello!

    Does anyone have written procedures, tips and/or suggestions for reuniting pets with unregistered microchips, pets that have on old tags that link to an previous owner (that unfortunately does not have info for the new owner), etc.? I am still pretty new here, so if there is a resource already on Maddie's, please let me know. (:

    Thank you!

    There's also a great course on Lost Pet Reunification on Maddie's University to which Return to Home Specialist Gina Knepp contributed greatly!
