The City of Casa Grande is pleased to join communities across the nation in recognizing Animal Control Officer Appreciation Week from April 8 through April 14. Each year, the National Animal Control Association designates the second week of April to take time to recognize and thank Animal Control officers for their dedicated service to public safety agencies and communities.
In observance, Mayor Craig McFarland has issued a proclamation declaring the week as “Animal Control Officer Appreciation Week” in the City of Casa Grande. Throughout the week, city staff will be sharing photo and video content on its social media channels to acknowledge the Animal Control officers and the critical role they play for the community of Casa Grande.
“Animal Control officers and staff dedicate many long hours of service by going out into the community to protect the welfare of helpless animals and pets that are rescued from injury, disease, abuse, and starvation…” said Mayor McFarland in his proclamation. “I encourage all citizens to join us in expressing our sincere appreciation for the service and dedication of our Animal Control officers and staff.”
