City to fo­cus on stray dogs

St. Thomas Times-Journal - - LOCAL NEWS -

City staff pre­sented coun­cil­lors with the re­sults of a pi­lot project launched last April dur­ing which city an­i­mal ser­vices picked up in­jured or stray dogs whether they were con­fined or not. Prior to the study staff were pick­ing up dogs only if they were con­fined. The pi­lot project found calls for dogs run­ning loose were time con­sum­ing, and some­times an­i­mal ser­vices re­ceived mul­ti­ple calls for the same dog, the re­port said. Coun­cil­lors con­firmed an­i­mal ser­vices will pick up in­jured or stray dogs and cats only if they are con­fined.
