Five Gold Stars
Rosie from Imperial

We received a call Wednesday afternoon 06/04/2009 from a VCA Vet Hospital. It was peculiar since this animal clinic was neither familiar nor was it our regular provider. It was over 150 miles away from our home! The young woman on the phone named Jenna was calling to say that "Mauley" had been dropped off there as a stray by a lovely woman named Tracy who had the wherewithal to request a scan of her neck. North Coast Veterinary Hospital in Encinitas, CA had easy access to our information from HomeAgain. The staff was trained on how to retrieve our information easily and accurately. No doubt that knowledge of your product facilitated our miraculous reunion. As you can imagine we were quite speechless during the call and Jenna had to repeat several times on the phone, "Are you there?" We had hoped for this day ever since Mauley disappeared nearly 4 years ago. After one long sleepless night, we were on the road for a 3-hour car ride to bring Mauley home again. One thing is for sure, we never gave up hope because of the HomeAgain Chip that she carried with her. But the technology is only as good as those who use it. VCA North Coast, you are awesome people for scanning our dog for FREE. Thank you for doing the bloodwork to make sure she was healthy when it came time to release her to us. Your professional courtesy and sensitivity shows! Our family is complete again. You have no idea how priceless this experience has been.
