Long gone is the term, "Dog Catcher." Animal professionals now perform a variety of services that help animals, as well as people. These services include, rescuing injured, abused and unwanted animals. Animal Control Officers respond to calls about neglected or lost animals and are often the first person to provide comfort and compassion to animals in need. Animal Control Officers notify worried pet owners that their beloved pets are safe and ready for reuniting with the owner and their families
