FRUIT HEIGHTS - It’s Animal Control Officer Appreciation Week.
It’s designed to promnote and recognize the hard-working men and women of Davis County Animal Control and similar agencies, said Clint Thacker, department director.
These people “risk their lives and spend huge amounts of personal resources, including time away from family and friends, while serving the public,” he said.
Each year, Animal Control officers spend thousands of hours protecting the welfare of helpless animals from injury, disease and starvation, while promoting public safety, Thacker said.
He suggests the public show its appreciation by stopping by the Fruit Heights shelter at 1422 E. 600 North, to say thank you, lending a hand as a volunteer, or making a donation to help care for the many homeless animals rescued by Animal Control officers, Thacker said.
