Do you know someone in Olathe who could use a daily call to check on them? We sponsor a FREE program to our residents called Operation Lifeline. We use police volunteers in our community who make daily telephone calls to retired and self-care persons who don’t have anyone to check on them on a regular basis. For more information on the program please visit: https://www.olatheks.org/government/police/community-outreach/operation-lifeline

Here's to a great 2018!

Brrr! As you bundle up during this freezing cold days, make sure that you are also thinking about your pet. Here are some cold weather tips from our Animal Control Officers: -Know your pet- some breeds can withstand cold weather better than others, so know what temperatures are ok for your pet. -Take shorter walks- with the temperatures dipping into single digits, short frequent walks are better than extended walks. -Check your pets paws- the chemicals that are used to treat streets and sidewalks can burn your pets paws. Check their feet frequently during walks and clean and inspect their feet when your return home. -Layers- using sweaters and jackets, especially for smaller breeds, can help keep them stay warm when they are outside. -Shelter- if your pet is a breed that can be outside, make sure that they have a shelter. Use hay instead of blankets, as blankets trap moisture.. -Water- make sure your pet always has access to water. Use a heated bowl or check the water frequently to make sure that it hasn’t frozen.

Oscar is on Santa Duty and will be escorting the Big Guy tonight as he makes his rounds through Olathe.
