It was found in the Turlock area and transported to another location outside of our area. We are assisting another agency in hopes to finding this dog's family.

🐶 🐾 🐱 National Animal Control Officer Appreciation Week is celebrated every second full week of April. The week is designed to say thank you and to show appreciation to all the animal control officers who are dedicated to helping pets and people in the community every day. Animal control officers pick up stray animals and sometimes even DOA's (Dead on Arrival). There is more to their job. Officers seek justice in cases of abused, neglected and abandoned animals; they conduct humane investigations and bring in helpless animals. They protect animals from abusers and people from dangerous animals. Thank you to our Animal Control Officers, and to all Animal Control Officers everywhere! Be sure to say thank you to an Animal Control Officer this week! 👍 😊 @turlockanimalservices #turlock #turlockpolice #turlockpd #animalcontrolofficer #animalcontrolofficersppreciationweek
