Volunteer Program Reinstated at Genesee County Animal Control [Video]

A decision to suspend the volunteer program at the Genesee County Animal Control has been reversed by county commissioners. According to ABC 12, on Thursday, commissioners listened for about an hour to volunteers as they expressed their alarm and disappointment they were no longer allowed there. The problems began on Tuesday when County Commissioner Pegge Adams temporarily suspended the program after she said there were online threats to employees there. The general public was made to sign in and provide ID to go into the kennel area and cell phones were not allowed inside. During the commission meeting, volunteers pointed out the importance of the services they provide such as walking dogs, feeding the pets and cleaning cages. Many of them also help with the adoption process and fear for the safety of animals. Commissioners decided the suspension was too harsh and voted 8-0 to let the volunteers return. An animal control millage for the November ballot was also approved by commissioners. The point-two mills levy would last for seven years if approved by voters.
