The ordeal began when Maia's owner, Paula Rodriguez, was in transit on a Delta flight that had a layover in Atlanta. Regrettably, during this layover, Maia mysteriously disappeared, causing deep distress for Rodriguez.
In a desperate attempt to find her beloved pet, Rodriguez took to a Facebook group called "Atlanta Area Lost and Found Pets" on August 18th, where she passionately pleaded for assistance in locating Maia.
On August 21st that she received a message from Delta Airlines revealing that Maia had escaped from her kennel on the airport ramp and that airport personnel were actively searching for her.
Subsequently, Robin Allgood, a dedicated individual with a mission to reunite lost dogs with their owners, took action by distributing flyers throughout the airport premises. Allgood's efforts did not go in vain, as she received a call from an informant who claimed to have sighted Maia. This crucial information led to the successful recovery of the beloved dog on a Saturday.
In the video below, Allgood explains where she found Maia.
They found Maia! Remember the dog I told y’all about who escaped her kennel while being transported by Delta in Atlanta? She was found by an animal welfare volunteer who put up signs around the airport & got a call today: the dog was still at the airport! https://t.co/87xzwgDSRY— David Begnaud (@DavidBegnaud) September 10, 2023
"It feels so good, it feels such a relief," Rodriguez said. "I am so happy my hear it full of love."
In a statement from Delta they said they are happy for all of the teamwork that made finding Maia possible.
