Hector the Labrador Retriever
Missing in action, Hector the four-month old Labrador Retriever was rescued by local law enforcement and reunited with his family in less than 24 hours!
Lost and on the run, Hector’s owner Anita was panicked and contacted AKC Reunite since her dog was microchipped and enrolled with our 24/7 recovery service to see what to do next.
“The representative who answered my call was WONDERFUL,” said Anita. “She not only walked me through the entire process, but she kept me calm and reassured me the entire time.”
Anita added AKC Reunite’s Lost Pet Alert service which broadcasted that Hector was missing to participating veterinarians, shelters, and pet lovers in the area he was last seen. Hector’s information was then shared on social media and local law enforcement was notified to be on the lookout!
“The next morning the Bessemer Police Department searched a three-mile radius and found Hector unharmed,” said Anita. “There are just no words to thank everyone for your support, your prayers, and assistance in bringing our boy home and making our family whole again.”
