Make a Big Deal about Animal Control Appreciation Week

Animal Shelter for WEB

April 11-17 is the week animal control professionals across the nation are showered with gratitude for their year-round dedication to community animals. The City is proud of the men and women of Plano Animal Services and appreciates the chance to recognize their commitment to excellence.

The work Plano Animal Shelter staff does isn’t all gentle puppy kisses and calm kitty purrs. There are times in their careers when there is an undeniable element of danger too.

Cantrell_JameyDirector Jamie Cantrell says, “Our animal control officers work very hard every day to provide outstanding service to Plano residents and animals. They tirelessly save lives and go above and beyond. From rescuing swans during the snowstorm to checking on all of our dog parks and more, we are very grateful for the excellent staff we have, and we can't thank them enough for all they do!”
