ANIMAL CONTROL Page Content Pet of the Week Did someone put up the bat signal? Must have ‘cause Batman is waiting for you! Batman was surrendered to the shelter because he is an energetic puppy and his owners did not have enough time for him. Batman has lived with other dogs and cats and enjoys romping with the kiddos, although he can be a little rough and mouthy for small children. Batman plays gently and keeps his kennel clean- he would benefit from puppy classes to help him learn to be the best boy. Animal Control News No items found.
