RITZVILLE – With a 10-year county contract coming to an end in December, staff from Adams County Pet Rescue (ACPR) met with county commissioners on September 20 to consider options for the future. Hiring an Animal Control Officer and strengthening existing ordinances were among the issues discussed.
Revised ordinances, for example, might provide ACPR staff greater authority to issue tickets or levy fines. Agency representatives noted that repeated admonitions to some dog owners have been disregarded, which may highlight a need to employ financial penalties to promote compliance.
