Can’t find your dog?
Call Columbia County Animal Services. The agency’s manager, Linda Glasscock, practically grinds her teeth in frustration when she hears someone has lost a pet, yet waits several days before calling the shelter to see if the pet has been picked up.
“That really gets under my skin,” she said. “If I lost my animal, the first place I would be is my local animal shelter.”
Spreading the word in that regard is among her agency’s ongoing challenges, Glasscock said, along with the continual push for people to spay or neuter their pets.
