Last Friday, 1st November 2019, I got a call from the microchip database PetTrac and the Victoria Blue Cross Hospital. It sounds like the Blue Cross handed my dog Zoe over to someone knowing she was registered as missing to me on her microchip registration and then failed to cross check the name of the person claiming her and then they obviously didn’t ask for any proof of ownership! They called me because I am registered on Zoe’s microchip!
The microchip company said they know where the dog is but they can’t give me any information because the dog is not registered to me at my new address, although my mobile is and I must update my registration. I called the Blue Cross back and they said they know where my dog is!
What I still don’t know to this day is, how they know but say they can’t give me information when Zoe is my dog? All they said was they had spoken to the the person who has my dog and he said “I won’t give the dog back because I‘ve got too attached to her”! So that’s ok then? Zoe is my family dog and I want her home with me!
I have all the papers from the vet I have all the proof that Zoe is my dog.
I am so stressed out heartbroken and desperate to get her back. I don’t look at her as property she is my baby girl our family and we really miss her.
I’m in the process of updating my registration to my new address. The microchip is in lockdown so no one else can change it!
Debbie from Vets Get Scanning and SAMPA is trying to help me and I’m turning to social media to raise awareness of the inadequate microchip system which is failing me in every way.

Police are following this up but it’s taking so long! Confusion with Data Protection!!
