ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- After being separated from his owner for two years and by more than fifty miles, a Rockford animal shelter helps bring a Siberian husky home.
Kody is now back in the favorite chair of his owner's home in Algonquin. In September 2015 Kody got through a fence at the home and despite flyers, a scent dog, drones and a “Bring Kody Home” Facebook page he had not been seen since.That changed Friday when someone saw Kody roaming the Rockford streets and brought him into the Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary. Through the use of a microchip, they were able to track down the owner.
“Evidently he had been looking for this dog for two years. He was ecstatic to hear that we had found it and came in the same day and picked him up, so it's just a complete validation of everything we do here and work for. I mean this is kind of an exceptional case but it's always great when we can reunite animals,” said kennel manager of Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary Ryan Vermillion.
