Kokomo, Indiana – In December 2019, a Florida woman’s dog disappeared from her backyard. Ines Figueroa searched everywhere for her pup, Grace, but she was nowhere to be found; Figueroa believes that Grace was stolen.
Figueroa never lost hope that she would see her pet again, but after years passed, the hope of a reunion faded.
That all changed in late July when Figueroa received an unexpected message from a shelter in Kokomo, Indiana. Shelter staff told Figueroa that someone dropped off a dog in front of the shelter and the scanned microchip information led them to her.
With the help of the Rescue Railroad group, Grace made the long trek from Indiana to Florida, where she was finally back in the arms of her rightful owner.
Grace’s story is an important reminder of the importance of microchips and keeping the contact information up to date. Welcome home Grace!
