MIDLAND COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A local humane society reached out to the public after a dog who went missing during Hurricane Harvey turned up in Michigan.

The Humane Society of Midland County said Oreo arrived a few weeks ago as a stray. The shelter was pleased to find Oreo had a microchip – but shocked when they discovered he was registered to a family in Houston, Texas!

“Oreo went missing during Hurricane Harvey and neither we nor his family can figure out how on earth, he got to Michigan,” the humane society said on Facebook.

Oreo's family still has their home, but lost a lot of possessions as well as their vehicle. The humane society put out an urgent plea looking for anyone who could fly to anywhere in Texas in the next coming weeks.

"We're just looking for somebody that's traveling to the area. We had a ton of leads. We posted it on social media and have gotten a ton of positive response. But basically we just want to get this guy home to his family. They lost everything in the hurricane, but she just wants her baby back," said Diane Winkler, with the humane society.

The shelter said Friday a local pilot offered to take Oreo the entire way home after seeing the story! Oreo left with them Thursday night and was home on Friday.
