The #GreatDane did not have any identifying information on her collar and was taken to the Aurora Animal Shelter. Still worrying about the dog and finding the puppy parents, dispatchers, through the resources of Nextdoor, were able to contact and #Reunite this beautiful doggy with its rightful owner! We are so glad that Katniss is back with her family. We wanted to give a shout-out to our amazing dispatch team and thank them for all that they do! This is a great example of #CommunityCommitment
