On Thursday, February 2, 2012, Montgomery County Animal Care and Control Officers were called to pick up a female boxer from 8850 South Union Road in Miamisburg. The dog had reportedly been thrown from a moving red pickup truck. The incident was witnessed by a “Good Samaritan” who stayed with and held the dog until ACCO David Walthall could arrive.
The dog was transported to the Animal Resource Center where she was examined by Dr. Kelly Meyer and treated for minor head trauma and "road rash." The dog's condition appears to be good and she was given medication to keep her comfortable overnight. The ARC staff has proudly named this little fighter “Bounce.” She is being re-evaluated today.
The caller also reported the situation to the Miamisburg Police Department. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the ARC. Donations may be made the “Tiny Tim Fund” to help “Bounce” and other injured animals receive additional medical care. “Bounce” may soon be available for adoption along with dozens of other wonderful dogs and cats.

Bounce was not micro-chipped, wearing a collar or licensed. The ARC is reminding pet owners of the importance of licensing their dogs. 2012 dog license sales have been extended through February 29, 2012, giving dog owners extra time to purchase.
The license extension also means extended hours at the Animal Resource Center. The ARC will open at 9 a.m., Monday through Saturday, now through February 29th. We will be open until 7 p.m. on the last day of license sales, February 29th.
Montgomery County dog licenses are $20 for dogs that have been spayed or neutered and $24 for unaltered dogs, but keep in mind, there are exceptions. Call 225-4314 for more information.
