PetSmart faces another dog death

The dog’s demise came the same day that officials raided a PetSmart store in Nashville and confiscated six small animals suspected of being abused. Lauren Bluestone, director of the city’s Metro Animal Care and Control department, said in an email that criminal charges are expected to be filed next week.

“The six animals finally were released into our custody from the small animal vet specialist,” she said, adding that “all animals are currently being treated but are doing much better.”

The death of Crawford’s dog follows the deaths of two dogs and the injury of another at a PetSmart in Flemington, N.J., during an eight-day period in December. Those deaths were not related, according to PetSmart.

Dog license, rabies vaccination canvassing in Westmoreland County begins Tuesday | TribLIVE

 

When state dog wardens fan out across Westmoreland County over the next two weeks to check whether more than 40,000 dogs have current licenses and rabies vaccinations, they won’t choose communities haphazardly, according to Kristen Donmoyer of the Department of Agriculture.

 Checks will begin Tuesday and continue the week of April 9.

“Most residents are cooperative, but not all. If a person is uncooperative, the warden can’t just barge in,” she said. “People can tell us to take a hike or get off their property.”

In those instances, the warden leaves a request for the homeowner to provide the required information by mail.
