‘Reggie’ and the National Pet Register Team have now been touring Queensland for four months. Together they have travelled thousands of kilometers, visiting towns as remote as Mt Isa, Charleville and Wooraminda to the cities of Brisbane, Cairns and recently the Gold Coast.
The tour has surpassed all expectations, reaching and microchipping over 2,000 pets, while meeting lots of wonderful people and animals along the way.
In recent weeks the team travelled down to the south western part of Queensland having visited Mitchell, Thargomindah, Quilpie and Charleville before making their way north again to set up for the Gold Coast show.
While visiting the town of Mitchell the team microchipped thirty-three dogs and cats and also did their bit to help find the owner of a lost puppy! While setting up for the event, a very concerned woman approached the National Pet Register Team to care for a young pup she had found wandering alone.
The lost pup wasn’t microchipped and was promptly secured in one of the cat carriers. It wasn’t long before the local Animal Control Officer called in for the microchipping event where the pup was handed over for the best possible chance of finding his owner.
He didn’t leave of course without being microchipped first!
Fortunately, it wasn’t long before he was reunited with his grateful owner, and the team caught up with her to make sure he was safely registered on the National Pet Register.
