Officer JR Cornett said in the past two weeks, five dogs have been adopted and two reclaimed by owners.
During the wet and freezing temperatures in winter, it is crucial for the animal’s health to provide proper shelter. Dog owners are urged to properly collar and tag pets. Letting dogs roam without identification can lead to them being picked up unnecessarily.
Hours of operation at Animal Control are Monday through 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.
