Roanoke City Animal Control Officer Billanti recently contacted us about a dog needing help- she had some serious skin issues that needed attention, along with a general health exam. There was one hang up, the owner was unable to transport her. There was also a solution, and for that we are very grateful- Officer Billanti picked up the dog, a sweet girl named Lola, and brought her in for treatment. A few hours later, she came back for Lola, and we sent her home with some much needed medications and a brand new dog bed.
Thanks to all of our animal control officers who go above and beyond for the pets in our community. We know it's a tough job, but we also know you are making a big difference- not only for the pets, but for their people too.
Compassion is a verb.
