Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Frederick County's Animal Control Division will send out an officer only to respond to emergency or "priority" calls.
Starting Friday, March 27, Animal Control officers will physically respond to calls only between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. that are deemed a high priority. All other calls will be handled by phone or email.
"From 9 p.m. to 7 a.m., an Animal Control Officer will be available to assist with animal related emergencies only. Due to the current crisis, we are striving to provide appropriate animal care and customer service in balance with public safety and human health," the division posted on its Facebook page Thursday.
