Everyone Loves Happy Endings Right?

Here is a wonderful story right in our own town with the help of Animal Control Officer Hill of Madera County Animal Services.

Patrolling is a normal part of the day for an Animal Services Officer. While traveling down Road 28 near Avenue 16, Officer Hill spotted a large bully type dog running down the middle of the street. As cars sped by or swerved to miss him, the dog kept traveling in a north bound direction.

Officer Hill moved her vehicle to be in front of his direction of travel. She jumped out of her truck and was able to slip a leash around him as he trotted by. This skill comes from years of working with livestock and lots of experience as an Animal Services Officer.

The temperature outside was almost 100 degrees and because he was running hard, the dog was exhausted and overheated. Officer Hill coaxed him into the air-conditioned truck. Once in the truck, she observed an identification tag! Eureka! Information that can actually help Animal Services Officers reunite lost pets with their owners!

Officer Hill made contact with the owner who lived on Kimmel Avenue in the City of Madera. The dog was reported missing since Friday July 12th. The owners had been searching everywhere for him. They had parents, brothers, the wife’s brothers, and many others searching everywhere.  “It didn’t feel right that Bradford wasn’t home with his family. Now it feels right!” said the owner.

The reunion between the lost dog and his owner was emotional. It was also inspiring and gave everyone, especially Officer Hill, a reason to smile and be thankful for that little identification tag. Bradford also had a microchip in case the tag came off. His owners love him intensely. They have had him since he was a pup and is an important part of their family.

As a reminder to all pet owners, please put identification on your pets! Make sure you can experience a happy ending like Bradford if your pet ever gets lost.

Licensing, identification tags, and microchipping, are all great ways to keep your pet safe and at home! Your pets want little in return for their unconditional love! Identification is the least we can do for our four legged family members!
