Tiny Boo - BK photoIt’s National Animal Control Appreciation Week, and Sumner is celebrating its own Metro Animal Services.  With three officers, including newly sworn-in Officer Sauer, Metro serves seven cities, including Sumner.  Last year, they responded to 3,477 calls for service, welcomed 9,167 human visitors to the Shelter, adopted 345 pets to new Forever Families and returned 329 lost pets to their owners.

How can you help celebrate?  There are a few ways:

1) License your pet – your annual license fee helps pay for all these services.Metro_web

2) Adopt a pet – adorable pets like Tiny Boo, shown here, are wondering if you’re their new Forever Family

3) Volunteer or donate – Metro runs on an extremely tight budget, making invaluable the over 40 volunteers who already give nearly 5,000 hours of service.
