PALMDALE (CNS) - A cat that had been missing for two years is back home, thanks to an implanted microchip that helped county animal welfare authorities track down the owners. Janus, a 7-year-old American Shorthair mix, was brought to the county-run shelter in Castaic after someone picked her up in the 26000 block of Rainbow Glen Drive in Santa Clarita.
At the shelter, Janus was scanned for a microchip, but the owner's information was outdated. Staffers then found a listing for the owner in Palmdale.
"We love to hear stories about animals being reunited with their owners," said Marcia Mayeda, head of the Department of Animal Car and Control.
"This serves as a good reminder for pet parents to remember to update their contact information for their pets' microchips and licenses. It makes all the difference."
