Roxy wandered off — from Lisa F. in Las Vegas, NV

We lost our dog, who wandered off from our house, and just 18 hours later, we got a call from the nearby animal hospital that someone had brought her in!

I couldn’t have asked for a more timely response. When she went missing, I freaked out because I didn’t know her microchip ID number. I called the vet who’d implanted it and they gave me the chip ID and the number to call HomeAgain.

I called HomeAgain, and the lady I spoke with was so helpful and comforting. She updated my account with all my current information and instructed me on how to set up the lost-pet posters and notification.

I sent everything out and then, just four and a half hours after updating my info and sending out notifications, I was called by the animal hospital.

Thank you so much to HomeAgain and to the gentleman who returned our baby, Roxy. You’ll never know just how deeply indebted we feel to you guys!
