Dog welfare addressed

On June 7, a West Bay area resident agreed to turn his dog over to The Ark Animal Shelter following another complaint that the black-and tan-hound was roaming at large in the vicinity of Route 1 and West Bay Road. Responding to the call, Chief McNulty contacted the canine’s owner who consented to release the dog to The Ark for needed vet treatment, neutering and adoption. The hound has been the subject of repeated calls to police.
