Chen was missing for 20 minutes before HomeAgain called.
Chen was running down a busy street — by Jen in Jacksonville, FL
My husband had accidentally left our front door open and I didn’t notice that our Shih Tzu-Poodle mix, Chen, was missing for probably ten minutes. After panicking and calling for her on our street, I realized she was nowhere near and jumped in the car. I was terrified I’d find her injured or dead since there is a lot of traffic near our home.
Thankfully, after another ten minutes of fruitless searching, I received a call from HomeAgain — they were connecting me with a man who had found her running down the middle of a busy street.
I met John and thanked him profusely. John said he also used a pet recovery service for his two dogs and that it had helped him in the past. I am so glad that I started the HomeAgain service and have been renewing. It only takes one time for it to be completely worth it!
