Some of my fellow dog and cat friends sometimes run off, for a number of reasons, loud noises or just a stroll and get lost. People help by taking lost dogs or cats to animal shelters. If like me and my best pal Ziggy, they have a chip between the shoulders they can be returned to their home quickly. But even then it can sometimes be confusing as you need to know which country or database has the registration.
There is now a web site on internet which combines all the databases so that even if you find a dog or cat, in another country, you or the animal shelter can find all the details of how to return a pet to it's home.
Please pass on this information to all organisations, vets and people you know, it is a very good tool to help us find happiness again
