The featured dog of the week is a sweet female mix picked up in the Morganton area.
She is a calm, short haired light brown with white mix and is currently up for adoption from Animal Control if not reclaimed by her owner. Her animal control number is 010-17.
The puppy was one of two puppies picked up last week. Officer Pat Patterson said while dogs are picked up they are reclaimed, adopted or go to rescue agencies on a routine basis.
Pet owners are encouraged to have proper identifcation on their pets to keep from having them reported as stray dogs and captured by Animal Control. Manager John Drullinger encourages residents to avoid capturing loose dogs. He said to just call Animal Control if concerned.
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.
