Changes for Animal Control of Allegany County are underway after the death of 9 dogs on McGill Dr. in BelAair. Becky McClarran, President of the Allegany County Animal Shelter Management Foundation, informed yesterday (8/21/14) the County Commissioners and the public about the immediate changes that already have taken place and changes that are still pending and being worked on to guarantee a better follow up on calls and reports from the public:
- dedicated phone line with separate phone number for Animal Control
- administrative assistant for Animal Control to answer phone calls and dispatch Animal Control
- daily management review of Animal Control phone log to make sure all issues have been addressed the same day.
- Introduction of a new mapping system as it is used by Emergency Services to keep better track of complaints.
This are the immediate steps that have been taken by the Allegany County Animal Shelter to serve the public better and faster. Further changes are pending due to on-going review of Animal Control operations.
