A happy ending

Christine Mourfield is reunited with her dog Pippy at Columbia County Animal Care and Control. The county is considering issuing ID tags to all dog owners to expedite the return of animals after they are picked up. At a Tuesday Community and Emergency Services Committee meeting, county officials likely will establish a $2 fee for each tag. A resolution must then be adopted by the commission.  Jim Blaylock/Staff

I agree with the ID tag,

I agree with the ID tag, responsible owners should register their pets with the county and more people would have "happy endings" like Ms. Mourfield!!!! KUDO's to Columbia County Animal Care and Control staff - they've got a tough job to do, and rarely get the recognition they deserve. They need a new facility as the county is growing by leaps and bounds, so is the animal population.
