Ride Along Wednesdays
~ Ride Along Wednesdays ~
“At approximately 9:30pm on May 1, 2016 the Brant County SPCA received an after-hours emergency call regarding a cat that had been abandoned on the rooftop of a duplex residence on Erie Avenue. The caller stated that another tenant had moved out of the duplex, leaving the cat behind. An Animal Control Officer was immediately dispatched to attend the residence.
Upon arrival, the Officer immediately observed an extremely frightened cat on the rooftop o…f the residence. The caller allowed the Officer to enter his unit and climb through a bedroom window leading to the rooftop in order to retrieve the cat. The Officer was able to safely gain access to the rooftop and retrieve the cat in distress, carefully placing her into a carrier.
The cat was then transferred to the shelter where she was evaluated. Thankfully, the cat now known as Lia, did not suffer from any injuries as a result of the incident and she is now doing fantastic!
We would like to thank the concerned citizen involved in the incident for his concern in the matter.”
At the Brant County SPCA we have the opportunity to be involved in many different facets of animal welfare. So much of what we do is ‘behind the scenes’ especially when it comes to our Animal Services for the City of Brantford and our Animal Protection Services for all of Brant County.
We are certain that most of you have seen our Animal Services team out and about in the community riding along in our Brant County SPCA vans. And we are sure a lot of you are curious to know what a day in the life of these officers really looks like. Well, we’re inviting you to ‘ride along with us’ so that you can see firsthand.
Every Wednesday we will share an interesting story from our Animal Services team. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry and some will make you hug your own pets a little tighter. But all of them will make you have a greater understanding of how important their role is within our organization. So buckle up and enjoy the ride!
