This is Paige and her dog Sergeant. The twist to this story is that Sergeant was stolen from her home three years ago and she hadn’t seen him since. Luckily, Sergeant was microchipped and Paige made sure to keep her contact information updated with the microchip company, just in case he was ever found. She says she had given up hope of ever seeing him again until she got a letter from Oakland Animal Services letting her know that Sergeant was found running loose in Oakland by an Oakland police officer. The shelter was able to contact Paige from his microchip. She came in today and was reunited with Sergeant after three years! She told us that she had just suffered the death of her other dog last month and was overjoyed to have Sergeant back in her life. It’s a wonderful reminder to make sure your pets are microchipped and the contact information is regularly updated! Oakland residents can have their dogs microchipped at OAS for only $10. Do it!
