TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) – A dog that went missing in Alabama two years ago has been returned to her family after she was discovered in Oklahoma.
Kirsten Williams, the Skiatook, Oklahoma, animal control officer, said Lily the beagle had a microchip that made this miraculous reunion possible.
Someone surrendered Lily a couple weeks ago to the Skiatook Animal Control, unaware the pup had a microchip and a family who missed her.
The folks who brought Lily to the animal shelter said they found her at a rest stop in Alabama nearly two years ago. But, now, she was digging out of the yard and they couldn't contain her.
Williams scanned Lily’s microchip during intake and discovered her family in Foley, Alabama. Lily’s info had been kept current by her family, though hopes of her homecoming after so long were likely growing dim.
Williams said Lily is now back with her family, with the help of Skiatook Paws and Claws Animal Rescue and a wonderful volunteer.
Microchipping saves lives, Williams said. It certainly led to a happy ending this time.
