Missing dogs located 6km away from their owners

Two missing dogs were located by an armed response officer in Wynberg this week, after he came across them while he was on patrol. This was six kilometres away from their home, in Upper Claremont.


“Officer Claude Maree was driving down Herschel Walk when he saw the two dogs. A member of the public helped him to eventually catch up with the dogs on Lovers Walk. The dogs were taken to Hillside Veterinary Clinic to see if the animals were chipped so that they could be reunited with their owners,” explains Mr Jade Hanning, Cape Town South district manager at Fidelity ADT.


The animals were in fact chipped, and the veterinary practice was able to track down a contact number but no physical or home address for the owners was loaded on the system. No one answered when the contact number was dialled.


“Officer Maree asked our monitoring centre team if they could help track down the owners’ address. Thankfully this proved successful and an address in Upper Claremont was tracked down. This meant the dogs were found more than six kilometres away from their home,” says Mr Hanning.


The dogs were taken to the address, where the home owner thanked the officer for going the extra mile and locating his beloved pets. They had reportedly gone missing and all attempts to locate them had failed.


Hanning says he is proud of how Officer Maree went all out to reunite the animals with their owner. “We all love our animals, and I thank him for making sure these two dogs were safely reunited with their owner.”
