County Gets New Dog Control Service

(Sept. 26, 2012)-- Fresno County supervisors approved a one-year deal Tuesday with private start-up Liberty Animal Control Services to provide services designed to supplement the Central California Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

   The Fresno Bee is reporting that the new Fresno-area company will be responsible for rounding up stray animals in the county's unincorporated communities, an arrangement made necessary when  the SPCA had a disagreement with local leaders.

     Supervisor Susan Anderson also announced Tuesday that she will try to improve animal control by introducing a spay-and-neuter ordinance next month. The proposal was considered seven years ago but did not stick.
