A heartwarming reunion seven years in the making

Last year, Ashley received a surprising call from Animal Humane Society. Her dog, Shiloh, had been found in Minnesota, seven years and hundreds of miles from where she'd lost him.

After receiving the call from AHS, Ashley immediately hopped in the car to make the drive from South Dakota to retriever her beloved pup. When Shiloh saw Ashley, he was slightly confused at first and looked her in the eyes intently — then he melted like butter. “He’s just as affectionate as I remember,” she says.

Losing a pet is heartbreaking. Ensure you're prepared with what do to should the unthinkable happen.
