Donation of MicroChip Pet Scanner to Sheriff’s Office

Last fall, Bria Dols, a vet tech at the Banfield Hospital in Savage, was involved in a car crash in Spring Lake Township when one of her dogs (ironically named Chase) ran from the scene of the crash and was missing for over 12 hours.  

Scott County Sheriff’s Office Community Engagement Deputy Amy Lueck responded and assisted in the search for Chase.  Along with a member from the Sheriff’s Office Mounted Posse Unit, Deputy Lueck continued with the search, even after her shift had ended.  Later that evening, Bria messaged Deputy Lueck and reported that she had located Chase unharmed. 

“Both Bria and I share a love of animals and helping them,” said Deputy Lueck.  “While we were searching for Chase, I mentioned to Bria that it would be beneficial for the Sheriff’s Office to get a MicroChip Pet Scanner.  Bria agreed and said she would research any available grants and programs,” Deputy Lueck added.

We are happy to share that Bria was able to help fill this request with the assistance of Lane Murphy, the Community Programs Specialist for the Banfield Foundation, who graciously donated a MicroChip Pet Scanner to the Scott County Sheriff’s Office.

“We have used the MicroChip Pet Scanner several times since we received it,” said Deputy Lueck.  “This tool helps us reunite lost pets with their owners and lessens the time they are in the custody of animal control.” 

Thank you to Bria Dols, Lane Murphy, and the Banfield Foundation for their kindness and generosity.
