Humane Society looking for owner of dog microchipped in Japan
Beagle registered to man stationed in Okinawa in 2010
The Humane Society of Southern Arizona is trying to find the owner of a dog that was brought into the shelter with a microchip registered in Japan.
Stephen, a 4-year-old beagle, was found near Speedway and Dodge boulevards earlier this week, said HSSA spokeswoman Lindsay Bruno on Friday.
A scan of Stephen's microchip revealed it was implanted at the Okinawa Veterinary Treatment Facility in Okinawa, Japan. It was registered to a man who was stationed in Kadena Air Base, Japan, in 2010.
HSSA staff has searched the Internet and contacted Davis Monthan Air Force Base, but has had no luck finding Stephen's owner, Bruno said.
"It is our hope that putting out information will reunite Stephen with his owner — especially given the circumstances," she said in a press release.
Anyone with information about Stephen's owner should call HSSA at 327-6088.
