Hi Roy.  Hopefully you don't have too many strays or loose animals running around your Kentlands neighborhood.

Beautiful picture, Roy. And a great reminder about how to deal with stray and injured animals. The animal control people in Charlotte are simply awesome.

Yes Roy, I just found two dogs last week running arounf the neighborhood. Thankfully our Community has an FB page and I posted pics and we found the owners! Thanks for sharing this information for our furry friends.

Roy, Excellent idea to contact Animal Control. Too many dogs and cats these days are left homeless by bad owners. Many of these animals are sick or are going to have babies.

I wish this was a place everyone could visit and understand the hard work that goes on behind the scenes for lost and stray animals. It is a sad place and many of the euthanized animals could be avoided with spay/ neuter of all pets.

Thanks, again, for your comments and for your continued support.

Have an outstanding weekend.

This is great local information to share. You know how I feel about animals. Great localism post, Roy. 

Posted by Debbie Laity, Your Real Estate Resource for Delta County, CO (Cedaredge Land Company) about 4 years ago

It is alarming to see a distressed animal and glad to know your local folks have a program in place to help.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) about 4 years ago

It's important that communities have a good animal control program.  I'm glad that Kentlands does!

It is always good to receive your comments. Thanks so much for stopping by.

I'm not sure if it's the smells of holiday cooking, the cold weather, or need for change but there are a lot of animals that seem to be homeless and it happens everywhere. Being kind to animals is a small thing to do. Adoping them is even greater. 

Posted by Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, Selling Homes Changing Lives (DFW FINE PROPERTIES) about 4 years ago

Good Monday morning to all. I hope you are enjoying the holiday events. Have a very special Christmas week.

Posted by Roy Kelley (Realty Group Referrals) about 4 years ago

Good Monday evening to all. 

Have an outstanding week. We may have some snow in Maryland before the end of the week.
