Why can't Animal Services respond to dogs running at large after hours?
Animal Service officers are not at the shelter or patrolling the streets after-hours. When a dog is spotted running at large by the public, the dog is not going to stay in the same spot, it is going to be moving. In the past, a great deal of tax payer money was spent to pay overtime for Animal Service officers to look for dogs running at large; the success rate was very low and could not be justified.
