Where do I start? Amazing work by Helper Katie ( screen name KatieF-Area Volunteer, Somerset.) Maxine, Heather et al…
Please read the comments on his page which describe the original search. Due to Data Protection the new owners details could not be accessed. Both lost and found registrations were moved to unknown away from the public eye while co ordinators continued to advise Catherine to ask the dog warden who had collected him to pass a letter to the new owner explaining the circumstances and also to contact a solicitor specialising in dog law for advice.
As the lost and found pages were no longer visible to the public in stepped a group of people including Maxine Hird, Heather Golding, too many to mention including DogLost volunteer, KatieF.
Last week Katie in her own words went on a Google mission and came across a match for Hamak along with contact details for the new owner’s daughter in law who confirmed that if there was an owner still searching then he would like to give them the chance to be reunited.
Arrangements were made, Katie collected Catherine and they drove to Norfolk where the reunion took place before bringing Catherine and Hamak back to Somerset for the night to make travel arrangements back to France.
It is bittersweet, there is now a family in Norfolk who have lost the dog they dearly loved but what an excited boy Hamak was when he recognised his mum.
Thank you to all who helped but very special thanks to Trevor and his family for making Catherine’s dream come true.
