Lilly Belle bolts outside — by Joanne in North Bend, OH

Lilly Belle was lost in strange territory.

We were visiting in our new vacation home near Walt Disney World. While trying to move the charcoal grill outside the screened pool are for a cookout, Lilly Belle escaped out the door. She was off like a shot!

We tried to run after her, but she was too fast. I got in the car and drove around the neighborhood for about 20 minutes, but could not find her.

Being far from home, I didn’t know what to do. I called our vet — the wonderful Dr. Jennifer Rumping at Oak Crest Animal Clinic at home in Ohio. She cool headedly gave me Lilly’s chip number and the Home Again phone number.

Less than 20 minutes later. I received a call back from Home Again who connected me with the lovely lady who found our precious Lilly.

Somehow, Lilly had gotten inside a gated community. I don’t know how I would have ever found her without the assistance of her chip and the Home Again services.

A very emotional day, but one that ended happily because of Lilly’s Home Again registration!
