Citizen of the Week

Wednesday, August 20, 2008

Not all dogcatchers are like the cartoon stereotype, scooping up your precious pooch with a big butterfly net when your back is turned. In fact, Jan DeLozier is the opposite. In the three months since she became Eureka Springs' Animal Control Officer, DeLozier has gone far beyond the limitations of her job -- supplied only with food and space for a few animals at the police station, she has opened a private kennel in her own home and has worked diligently to raise funding on her own to provide for the many needs of her four-legged dependents. We admire her love and tenacity.

  • I really admire her for doing a job that I always love doing, helping the animals. Whether they are abandoned, injured, or just lost and need help finding there way home again, I am a major pet lover, especially of cats and love to know we have someone who cares for our pets and not just toss them into a truck or carrier and and then into a dirty kennel like Iv'e seen done in my past in places iv'e lived. They deserve love and respect as would a human, i sometimes feel pets are more loyal than a person is. Thanks for all your excellent work, I am glad to see you on board.
