Bellefontaine, Ohio – February 28, 2014 – Carol Souza Sworn In As Humane Agent
The Top of Ohio Pet Shelter announces that Carol Souza was sworn in as a Humane Agent today by Family Court Judge Michael L. Brady. Carol, a 23 year veteran of the Air Force, recently completed her Humane Agent training in London, Ohio.
During her Air Force career, Carol was an MP and a K9 Trainer/Handler, so she has both law enforcement and animal handling in her background. A Humane Agent enforces animal cruelty, animal neglect, and other animal protection laws. Carol will be checking dog licensing issues as well as investigating neglect and cruelty cases.
As a reminder, Ohio law states that all dogs over the age of three months must be licensed. The law applies whether the dog is kept inside or outside. If you have not purchased a 2014 Logan County dog license, you may purchase it, for $24, at the Top of Ohio Pet Shelter or at the Logan County Auditor's office.
