Animal Services - Leash The Ones You Love

OLYMPIA, WA  - Think outside your home now that warm weather and longer days have returned to our area.  Dogs love to go on walks and it’s good for them.    If you aren’t in a park that is posted “off leash,” your dogs should be on a leash.   It protects them from that urge to run after wildlife or other dogs, or run into the street, and it gives you control should an emergency come up. Make sure your dogs and cats wear collars with current ID tags.  Even “indoor” cats manage to get out and get lost.   If you haven’t already, consider micro-chipping your pets. You don’t have a dog to walk or a kitty to play with?  Come down to Animal Services and see which one speaks to your heart.  Adopt a buddy Joint Animal Services  May 21, 2015
