New scanner already helping to reunite dogs and owners

CHICAGO -- New  technology at Chicago's Animal Care and Control is already proving to be a success.

Last week, new mobile microchip scanners were introduced, for police and animal care officers out in the field.

This week, the technology helped quickly identify T-Rex.

Officers found her at a firehouse, scanned her and quickly contacted her owner, all without having to process her in a shelter.
