Letter: Prescott's lucky to have center

EDITOR:

I am a volunteer dog walker at Prescott Animal Control, aka PAC. I go to play with the dogs, exercise them, socialize them, even teach them to walk on a leash and come when called.

We walk on the beautiful Peavine Trail.

Sometimes we stop and sit on a log and just talk. These dogs need human interaction and it's amazing how fast they perk up after we spend some time together.

I usually have dog cookies in my pocket and saw a dog bury a biscuit for the first time! The dogs get used to passing joggers, bicyclists and other dogs. It's a calming and refreshing time for the dogs and me. Back at PAC we have a fenced and shaded patio to play ball on and practice recalls. Sometimes I comb and brush them so they get used to being handled.

The Animal Control officers are always available if we have any concerns with a timid or over zealous dog. It is the highlight of my day to socialize with these animals. Many people do not realize you can adopt a dog from PAC.

Prescott is a unique city and so lucky to have this Animal Control facility for lost dogs!
