some 400 miles away in Houston after being gone for nearly a decade.  During those eight years, Jasper was taken care of by another family who eventually moved to Houston and brought him to the Houston SPCA over the weekend.

The Houston SPCA scanned Jasper for a microchip as part of their admissions process and immediately contacted the Hendrys after garnering their contact information.  “We thought he was dead until we got a phone call from the Houston SPCA saying they had Jasper in their care,” said Tiffany Hendry.  “It’s so great there is a place where animals can be taken in and have their microchipped scanned.”  Hendry added they intentionally had Jasper microchipped after the first dog they adopted went missing.  The Hendry family said now that Jasper is home again, he will spend his days enjoying their 50-acre ranch with a host of other pets and farm animals.

The Houston SPCA wants this amazing reunion to showcase the effectiveness of microchipping pets and serve as an important reminder for pets to wear collars with updated tags as well.
