Observations from Angela Lennox, DVM:

A Big Thank You to Our Friends at Animal Care Services!

We would like to take this time to thank a group of hard working individuals who work all year round behind the scenes: our local Marion County Animal Care Services!  While we think of Animal Control’s job as handling calls related to stray or mistreated dogs and cats, Control officers are continually bringing us sick or injured wildlife reported by the public, and sometimes even pet exotics that have been turned loose or are being neglected. These guys work really hard to make sure everything possible is done for the critters in their care and definitely don’t deserve the bad reputation that comes with the name “Animal Control”!

Wildlife season is upon us, and we expect to see a lot more of our friends very soon.

So a big THANK YOU for all you do!
