Commissioners Recognize Animal Care & Control Officers and New ARC Mascot

The Montgomery County Animal Resource Center introduced its new mascot to the County Commissioners on Tuesday, April 10th, 2012! "Monty" the mascot was paid for through donations received in honor of Kenneth G. Meyer who passed away in 2010. Kenneth's daughter is Dr. Kelly Meyer, the veterinarian for the Animal Resource Center (ARC). Monty will continue the ARC's mission to educate the public on the importance of adoption and animal care.
