Midas found and reconnected with owner from microchip

Midas got loose and was brought to SPARC, many miles from where his home is. Was reunited with his family through his microchip! Thank goodness he was chipped.

Lost 3 years ago and pulled from county kill shelter landed at SPARC

The dog was lost in Ventura while owner was on vacation. She was brought to Camarillo shelter (a kill shelter) where she was spayed and microchipped. A Santa Paula resident adopted her but unfortunately through changing circumstances had to bring the dog to SPARC knowing that it would be safe as we are No Kill. We had the dog for about a week when our FB post was seen by a long lost friend of the original owner who then contacted her and she was at our center within the hour!!!Reunited here. Happy happy dance.

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives. (see links below on Ventura County Star Article & Shelter) To find out more please go the The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap on facebook or Amazon or e-mail us at the gavatar addresses. Thank you.

    Wonderful, heartwarming, and uplifting stories!

  3. I love the stories about pets being reunited with their owners; a good reason to have a microchip.

  4. Moves me to tears. Always does.

  6. Great to hear of the adoptions and the two reunited dogs. Micro chipping all dogs and cats really is the way to go. It’s a requirement for all who undertake international travel but reuniting strays is the most powerful reason to do it.

    My eldest phoned me this morning, wondering if they should get me another dog. I’m still very sad about my old man, but when I do feel ready, I will get a rescue animal of some kind. Both them and me need to feel needed ;-)

    • When it’s right it’ll happen, like magic. One day you’ll just gravitate to where that fury kid awaits you and that’ll be it, that place — that need, will be filled in the most magical way. In the meantime, honoring your insides, soothing the all too nearness of your fury old man’s moving on to the rainbow bridge and just taking care of you sounds like where it’s at for you. Have a good weekend. :-)

    Wonderful stories thank you so much for sharing them. Hugs

  9. Oh crap, I welled up. Where are my Kleenex?
    Heartwarming. Thank goodness for microchips.

  10. The rescue center just posted the back story: https://www.facebook.com/santapaulaarc
    Santa Paula Animal Rescue Center The dog was lost in Ventura while owner was on vacation. She was brought to Camarillo shelter where she was spayed and microchipped.

    An amazing story and thankfully now back she’s now back with her original owner. Wish she would have been micro-chipped to begin with.

      A lot of heartache might have been avoided had the dog been micro-chipped. And, what a lucky break it was adopted from the Camarillo shelter which is a kill shelter. Scary story with a thankfully happy ending.

  13. Sigh. Sniff. Smile. :)

    Lovely stories!

    Can’t simply click on ‘like’; have to give you a ‘fabulously enjoy’ seeing happy puppies & kitties. Without the animals the world would be a tragic place, indeed…

  16. Our pets have always been rescues and they’ve been the greatest. We couldn’t have asked for better additions to the family.
