SMACF ADOPTION UPDATES

Two things we love: Helping  animals at Blount County Animal Center find their forever homes … and then seeing their joyful reunions and happily-ever-after stories. Here are some of those stories:

QUINCY

A funny thing happened at the shelter one Monday night in September 2016.

Dr. Williams, Blount County Animal Center’s vet, was there late due to an emergency. As she was leaving at 9:30 p.m., she opened the back door and a very friendly cat walked right in. She prepared a crate for him for the night and also discovered he was microchipped.

The next morning, the shelter traced the chip back to the Sumner County Animal Shelter in Gallatin, Tennessee. They were able to contact the cat’s owner, who was overjoyed. She had moved to Louisville, Tennessee, in February and her cat, Quincy, had disappeared a month later. She had given up hope of finding him, but she also did not realize he was microchipped.

Within an hour she was at the shelter for a joyful reunion.

This story is a great reminder to get your microchipped and keep the information with the company up-to-date. Also, if you FIND an animal, please take it to a vet clinic or shelter and have them scan for a chip. It costs nothing and can get animals back to their owners quickly.

Congrats to Quincy and his owner. We rejoice with you. The lost has been found!

Winnie was promptly renamed “Milly.”  Shaun and Heidi say they could not be more thrilled that Miss Milly is now in their family and promise that she will live a life filled with love and lots of adventure, such as hiking, camping, and swimming.  Miss Milly even has her own Instagram account (@milly.philly) where we can follow her adventures
