Full circle

For Abigayle, Maggie's return brought her pet's odyssey full circle, April Hight said.

"One of (Abigayle's) fond memories we talk about a lot is when she was little, my husband would sit on the couch and play this tune we called 'The Maggie Song,'" April said. "It's something from her childhood coming around to her teenage years. She can put the gist of it all together.

"... For Maggie to come home after what she experienced is bittersweet for us. That she's safe and she's home, that's what I've been reflecting on. Our goal is to see children go home, too."

PAWS microchipping service

The Panhandle Animal Welfare Society animal clinic offers pet microchipping similar to that which brought Maggie home to the Hight family.

When: 9 a.m. to 12:30 sign-in, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday
