Several calls have been received about dogs running at large. If this occurs, the first step would be to call the owner. If this doesn’t help solve the problem, then the County Animal Control should be called. Once again, let's try to be good neighbors.

 

When Walking or walking dogs at night please wear light colored or reflective clothing and carry a flashlight. These things could help to avoid an accident.
