Woman Discovers Her Lost Dog On Florida Brewery Beer Can

There's been a few brewery's lately that have started to put faces of adoptable dogs on them, to spread awareness and in hopes to place that pup in a forever home. 

A wonderful initiative that has reunited Monica Mathis, from Minnesota, and her lost dog of 3 years, Hazel!

Monica Mathis, first noticed her dogs picture on a beer can from Motorworks Brewing, in Manatee County.The dog on the beer can was called 'Day Day,' and she had been at the Shelter Manatee in Iowa. 

How she got to Iowa from Minnesota is still unknown. 

"I saw one of the dogs on there and I was like 'oh my gosh, that looks like my dog. I searched for her, I called shelters and couldn't find her at all and eventually I moved back to Minnesota," Mathis told ABC Action News

"She looked in the article and saw our name and she called us right away," said Hans Wohlgefahrt, with Manatee County Animal Services.

Upon checking Day Day, they discovered she did have a microchip with Monica's first name attached to it, but her last name has since changed and the information attached to the chip was outdated. Luckily, Mathis had the paperwork needed to prove that Day Day was in fact Hazel. 

The shelter said that even the likelihood of Day Day (Hazel) being one of the four chosen to appear on the can, was unlikely. 

"For her to be on that can was amazing, and for it to go viral and of course for her family to see it in Minnesota," said Pam Frensi with Shelter Manatee.

"The chance to be able to have her come home is amazing. I'm just so happy that I'm getting her back," said Mathis.

Manatee County Animal Shelter is now working on getting Hazel back to Minnesota, and to Mathis, sometime next week! 

We love a happy ending! So happy for Hazel and Monica Mathis!

Teen Volunteers At Animal Shelter And Finds Her Long Lost Cat

Reunited and it feline good! 

Talk about meant to be! In Roseburg, Oregon, lived a teen who lost her childhood cat three years ago. 

The Roseburg teen decided to volunteer at a local animal shelter, three years later, only to find herself face to face with a familiar face.

At the Saving Grace Pet Adoption center, 15-year-old Hannah Rountree recognized Spunky, her long lost cat. At first, Hannah wasn't 100% sure it was Spunky, only that the resemblance was uncanny, "I was like, is that my cat? It literally looks so much like Spunky."

"He was my first cat and the first thing I bonded with as a child, so it was really hard; I cried a lot," Hannah told KMTR.

Hannah and her family spent months looking for Spunky when he disappeared three years ago. Hannah made the realization that Spunky might be forever lost to her, "that's when I was kind of like, I think he passed away, or someone took him far away."

"That's how I got him; it was just fate, I feel like."

But there's still a mystery as to where Spunky had been these past years. You see, Saving Grace director Wendy Kang, Spunky was only brought into the shelter just a few months ago. "He was brought in as a stray who had been found off the side of the highway in Winchester," Kang said. 

Spunky went up for adoption and was actually adopted by a couple who brought him back because Spunky wasn't very fond of chasing mice. 

So there he was, the stars aligned, and Hannah and Spunky were able to reunite at long last.

What a beautiful reunion! 

Sasha, a Portland long-haired black cat, has been reunited with her hooman, Viktor Usov, after being missing for five years! The lost feline was found 1,300 miles away in Santa Fe, New Mexico. 

Usov originally adopted Sasha from the Oregon Humane Society about six years ago. Back then, Sasha was sick, had a distended belly protuding from his underside and had a constant runny nose. Usov didn't mind any of that, there was a click between the two, upon first meeting.

And luckily, after adopting Sasha, Usov's mom applied some acupuncture treatments that cleared up Sasha's health issues quickly. 

Usov told OregonLive, "He turned into one of the friendliest cats I've ever met."

Sasha would follow Usov on walks, with their puppy, Tara. One day, Sasha went out for a walk and just didn't return. 

"We waited a week or so," Usov said. "But when we didn't get a call from the Humane Society and no one returned him, we figured a coyote got him. We were upset but we moved on."

Fast forward to just this last week, Usov gets a phone call from an animal shelter in New Mexico -- Sasha was mircochipped! At first, Usov didn't believe it was the same cat, but when the shelter described Sasha's friendly demeanor he just knew. 

According to the shelter in New Mexico, Sasha was particularly happy to be picked-up but appeared healthy and well-fed!

But how did Sasha get all the way to New Mexico? Usov has a theory:

"He went on a grand American adventure," Usov told KGW. "He stopped by the Grand Canyon, Crater Lake, he saw the monuments, all the national parks, definitely Redwood Forest."

Congratulations on the happy reunion, Usov and Sasha! And just a friendly reminder to all the pet owners out there to please microchip your pets!

Another story that truly shows the importance of micro-chipping your beloved pets! 

11 years ago, in New York, Maggie Welz lost her beloved feline, Tiger. 

Fast-forward to today, that same Tiger was rescued and brought in by the Dutchess County SPCA, where they discovered he was micro-chipped! According to SPCA officials, it took staff member Carol O'Connell three years to get close enough to the missing feline that had been coming by her home every now and then.

O'Connell told Eyewitness News, "Each year he came to my house, he deteriorated more and more each year, and that's when I realized either somebody just abandoned him or he just was missing or lost or he was just a feral cat. This spring he started to come around a little bit more in the mornings so I started to work harder to try to gain his trust." 

Seems like he knew who to turn to for some help.

SPCA officials said they she borrowed a scanner from the shelter to check if he was micro-chipped on a whim. With the information they were able to locate Maggie Welz and finally reunite her with her Tiger!
