The National Animal Control Association (NACA) has selected the Montgomery County Animal Resource Center as the recipient of the 2012 Outstanding Animal Control Agency Award. The ARC received this top honor in 2010 and is the only agency to be recognized twice with this award in the past two decades.
“To receive this award twice is an incredible accomplishment and we could not be more proud of the Animal Resource Center staff,” said Montgomery County Commission President Judy Dodge. “Montgomery County is committed to providing excellent service and care to our citizens and their pets. This award is evidence of that commitment.”
NACA’s selection criteria for the 2012 Outstanding Agency Award included the ARC’s effective training program for personnel, outstanding/innovative public education programs, and active community involvement.
The nominations were considered along with those from other agencies from across the United States and selected as meeting the highest standards. Montgomery County ARC Director Mark Kumpf accepted the award on September 6, 2012 at NACA’s Annual Training Summit held this year in Louisville, Kentucky.
