Enjoy our fluffy friends' happy stories. 

Our story is about the dog Ada, who returned home thanks to caring people and a QR pet ID tag. Let's go!

"This morning, a woman brought our four-legged friend home!" - told us the Ada`s pet owners.

"Her words described Ada, who had been lost recently, walking near the school and scaring everyone around her with her formidable appearance - she is not a small dog. 

The woman who rescued her used to work with dogs, so she was able to contact her and scan Ada's QR code. That's how the woman found out our number and address. By the way, we bought the QR pet ID tag just a week earlier, as if we felt something .

Unfortunately, we didn't hear the phone, because the sound was turned off - a small child is sleeping at home, and we put the phones on silent mode at night. Our address is not even listed in online maps. 

So, she called Ada by nickname and told her to go home.

This is how our fluffy friend Ada returned to us. Thanks to Animal  ID and  brave woman."

Different cases happen, friends. Don't forget about the safety of your pets - identify them and stay together.

Another incredible story from our four-legged friends & their owners.

This time we`ll tell you about the dog Fani and his "journey" from Chernivtsi to Odesa. The “trip” was full of amazing moments but definitely with a happy end!

Stay tuned…

There was September 18 and Fani started his ordinary day: breakfast, walk, games, etc 

However, he suddenly got scared and ran away. With the whole family, friends and acquaintances, the owners started searching, but unfortunately  without effect.  Ads about Fani were posted in local groups in Chernivtsi, chats and social networks. 

In the following days, the owners were alerted that someone had seen how a girl caught Fani. However, no one contacted the owners.

As soon as they realized the dog might have been stolen, they acted decisively: notified local vet clinics, posted announcements in search groups, and listed Fani as wanted in Animal ID database. 

Vet clinics in other cities were asked to check the dogs, as Fani had a microchip. Owners awaited news.

On September 23, the call rang and the owner picked up the phone. The girl reported that she worked  at a veterinarian clinic in Odesa. Then the girl asked the owner to tell Fani`s microchip number, and miraculously, all the numbers matched! However, how did Fani end up in Odesa?

It turned out that the dog was dumped. Fortunately, the truck drivers who stopped suddenly to avoid running him over, found him on the highway near Odesa. Despite their best efforts, the truck drivers were unable to take him with them.  Another car stopped nearby. The wonderful girl - Maryna - emerged from her car. She agreed to help our four-legged friend and took him to the vet clinic. There the vets checked the microchip number and found the registration in Animal ID database and an announcement on the Internet as well.

The owners were in touch with Maryna until they took Fani away. Maryna took him for a medical examination: it turned out that due to stress, Fani had heart murmurs. She took it to the groomer as well. Maryna fed, worried, and took care of Fani. The dog even managed to work in the office and received treats as a salary! The owners are very grateful to Maryna, the veterinary clinic and Animal ID. Otherwise, they would never have found him.

You need to be a responsible pet owners, microchip your pet, issue documents, purchase QR pet ID tags, and register them! This will help to find the owner ASAP in case of being lost. 

Take care of your four-legged friends!

Thanks to Animal ID QR-tag, Maine Coon Max from Bucha, kidnapped by Russian invaders, returned home 80 days after the occupation.

Max is a Maine Coon from Bucha. He was taken from his home by Russian soldiers and left in Belarus after Ukraine’s victory in the Battle of Kyiv. Thanks to some kind people in Belarus who found him and used his QR tag to find his owners, Max has been reunited with his family.

Max the cat was driven more than 200 miles away on a Russian armored vehicle to the major military base of the Russian Forces in Gomel, Belarus, where he soon ran away from his captors. Lost, scared, and hungry, Max eventually approached people a few days later. The locals who found Max scanned the QR code on his tag and were able to get his owner’s name and contact information.

Supported by the warm-hearted animal owner community, Max traveled for 80 days and over 1,500 miles through Ukraine, Belarus, Poland, and the Czech Republic to finally be reunited with his family.

Animal ID have been inspired by stories like these of the happy returns of pets to their owners. The social project Povidok has helped tens of thousands of pets in Ukraine get identified and registered.

Thanks everyone for your support and help!
