Animal Friends Hold Dog Rescue Campaign

Animal Friends will be holding its 13th annual new year's eve dog rescue on Thursday. Groups of volunteers travel to animal control facilities and gather lost dogs that are slated to be euthanized at the end of the year. The dogs are then taken back to the animal friends facility in Ohio Township where they are bathed, groomed, vaccinated and evaluated for behavioral and medical issues. The dogs will then be put up for adoption. Jolene Micklas, spokesperson for Animal Friends, says they expect to rescue around 30 dogs. Micklas says that a good way for authorities to identify your dog if it is lost and then found without its tag or identification is to get a micro-chip inserted in the dog allowing for it to be tracked, located and identified.
