Adopt A Pet
In the past week, officers brought in seven dogs. One was adopted, five were reclaimed by their owners and one pup went to Dog Days Rescue.
Animal Control Officers and volunteers alike hope folks may be willing to open their home and their hearts to the dogs in their facility.
Community members are welcome to make item or monetary donations and may also walk dogs to help them get exercise.
Officer JR Cornett invited folks to come walk the dogs. “We need dog walkers, come on down,” he said.
Pet owners should make sure to properly tag and identify pets to prevent them being picked up unnecessarily. It is also advised to keep microchip information up to date.
Hours of operation at Animal Control are Monday - Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at the facility. After hours the officers follow up with community concerns and respond to stray dog calls.
For information on any of the dogs at Animal Control, to donate, volunteer or to see if a lost family pet has been picked up, call 706-632-3845.
