With 35 years of animal control service under his belt, John Baird, Chief Animal Control Officer for the City of Cleveland, has both experienced and contributed to significant changes in the profession over the last three decades. We can’t think of a more fitting way to celebrate National Animal Control Officer Appreciation Week than to share his industry insights in honor of his hard work and that of all the dedicated ACOs in the field.
Joan’s eyes sparkled, and she looked as if she could not quite stay still in her skin as she described her most recent adoption. She was able to send home a kitty who had been overlooked for way too long… Joan had spent a few hours visiting with this cat during his stay, and she knew some important things about him – how he loved to cuddle in her lap and have his belly scratched just so. Knowing the adopter was interested in a real cuddler, she simply suggested that the adopter spend a few minutes visiting… that was all it took!
It’s National Animal Control Officer Appreciation Week—time to reflect on how thankful we are for these lifesaving hometown heroes. ACOs, we salute your compassion, your hard work and your tremendous dedication to protecting the communities and animals you serve.

We all know that social media offers incredible opportunity for promoting your available animals, but some shelters are taking it to another level with specialized Facebook pages. Greenville County Animal Care in Greenville, SC, for example, has a regular Facebook page for the general public, as well as a designated Greenville County Pet Rescue Facebook page featuring rescue- and transfer-related posts that aim to help these animals hitch a ride to their new homes.
