Today, while going to my family's house, I came across a small, yet chubby, black dog running on Franklin Blvd. (sort of by Franklin School) While calling the warden, who was closed, I called the non-emergency police line. Again I was told by the dispatcher that there was no help and I had to either keep the dog or let it go
. Sure let me just let a dog go in the middle of Franklin Blvd because there are no speeding cars or anything.
Thankfully one of my vets was open today, as they are every single day and they do have the dog. This poor baby threw up on me, peed on me and then pooped all over me. He had ice on his belly and seriously sank in to me in the warm car. He is at Westpark Animal Hospital. He did not have a current county tag on so there was no way for me to get any information. He is warm, safe and being fed. I will pick him up Monday morning and try to find his owners. (i get it being a holiday and all, but seriously I am still working today, taking care of dogs, cats and such, why can't there be a warden who can pick this up, or at least a police man who can throw the dog in the back of the car and drive it to the shelter? i know many other cities that have police officers do this and wardens on call all the time.)
