Last week, we learned all about microchips and how they are a valuable tool to help lost pets get home. This week’s episode features the story of one such pet who got separated from his owner. Thanks to his microchip, Scooter was reunited with his mom six months after going missing.


Trish Olive joins the podcast to talk about her experience losing her cat Scooter in the Franklin area. Danielle Nunnery is here to explain how trapped Scooter and reunited him with Trish. It’s an emotional story, sprinkled with some cool coincidences and concluding with the happiest of endings.
