A cat stuck in St. Louis is headed back to Charlotte thanks to a microchip


ST. LOUIS – An adopted cat from North Carolina will soon be reunited with some people from his old life after being surrendered in St. Louis over the weekend.

The cat who is now known as ‘Louis’ was dropped off at the Human Society of Missouri and was identified via a microchip scan, the shelter said.

“We always scan and trace every animal that comes in whether they are owner surrendered or stray”, said Becky Krueger Manager, Marketing Communications at Humane Society of Missouri. “You never know if someone may be looking for that particular animal”.

After discovering that Louis’ microchip was registered to Furever Angels Animal Rescue of Charlotte, the shelter was able to contact Pat Shannon and arrange transportation.

“A flight attended with American Arline’s is going to fly with him back to Charlotte”, said Shannon. “We are so grateful, the microchipped saved him”.

For the next two weeks, Louis will stay at Five Acres Animal Shelter in St. Charles where they have offered to get the fury feline ready for transport.

“We are big on helping other rescues, said Nikki Lowe Feline Manager at Five Acres Animal Shelter. “You can’t save them all by yourself and if you work together you have the best chances of saving a lot more”.

All three humane societies want to bring more awareness of the importance of pet owners making sure their pets are microchipped

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
