With A Heat Increase, So Do Animal Control Calls In Salisbury

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - When the temperature goes up, apparently so do the calls to local animal control.

Salisbury Police say they have gotten 35 calls so far this year, most of them coming in this summer.

Animal Control Officer David Shanks says they are averaging about one call per day, with most calls coming in during the early morning hours on the weekends. He warns pet owners if you plan on going out, even if it looks like it may be a short trip, it is not worth it to bring your pet.

"My rule is anytime it's over 75 degrees outside," says Officer Shanks. "If you want to ride around with your pet fine, but immediately take them home and stay with them the whole time."
