Animal Protection and Control Follow Up on Pit Bull in Larimer County
An officer with Larimer Humane Society’s Animal Control and Protection unit revisited a residence in unincorporated Larimer County Thursday to ensure that proper improvements had been made for the care and shelter of a pit bull discovered tied to a tree with inadequate shelter for the current weather conditions.
According to Bill Porter, Director of Animal Protection and Control, the owner has been extremely compliant throughout the investigation and has built a shelter for the dog. Straw and blankets for bedding were provided by Larimer Humane Society to better protect the dog from the elements. As well, the owner is continuing to make improvements to the dog’s situation and is working Fort Collins Cat Rescue and Spay/Neuter Clinic to provide vaccines and sterilization for this particular dog as well as their other unaltered dogs on the property.
