Starting tomorrow, it’ll be National Animal Control Officer Appreciation Week. This is an important week because it allows us to honor all that animal control officers do for the well-being of dogs and other animals out there (which is a lot!).
This appreciation week is endorsed by the National Animal Care & Control Association. Animal Control agencies everywhere are encouraged to have their own celebrations this week to honor their diligent workers.
It takes a lot to be an animal control officer. Nine times out of ten, if you’re an ACO, you have a love and adoration for animals, big and small. One of the hardest things to do as an animal-lover is to watch animals suffer. But animal control officers do this nearly every day.
NACCA, the endorsers of ACO Appreciation Week, encourage local agencies to give out awards to officers as well.
This week, check out our blogs to see our appreciation for some outstanding animal control officers!
