Riddick’s Journey Home

At the Jacksonville Humane Society, we know that pets are family and belong with the people who love them. When 10-year-old Riddick came to our shelter, we knew that someone must be missing this sensitive, gentle boy.


Thankfully, Riddick’s microchip was registered with contact information, and we quickly reached out to his former owners. We learned that Riddick’s family lives in North Carolina and they had been separated for several years. While they were ecstatic to hear that Riddick was safe and being cared for and they wanted to bring him home, they did not have the ability to travel to reclaim him.

Thankfully, our friends at US Pet Transport Services stepped in to take Riddick home in style!

Riddick traveled safely and comfortably back to his family in North Carolina, and is back where he belongs – with his loving family. We are beyond grateful for everyone who contributed to his happy ending!

Is your pet’s microchip information up to date? This information is invaluable to helping reunite with your pet if they are brought to a shelter. We also recommend creating a profile on Petco Love Lost, a free online reunification tool.
