Good morning. I wanted to take a few minutes to address a post made about an animal welfare issue and provide some actual facts about the situation.
First, the Farmville PD would not sit by and knowingly allow any animal to be neglected or abused. If we are called, not tagged in a Facebook post, about any issue, we will respond.
The Farmville PD was contacted one time about the issue regarding two dogs being left outside and officers responded twice on that day. Making contact with the owner on the second attempt. After making contact with the owner, the dogs were placed inside a heated storage barn with food and water.
Officers went by the house today to check on the welfare of the dogs and when we arrived, we spoke with a family member that stated the dogs were put back inside the same heated storage building because of the temp outside.
The reason for this post is because if I hadn’t been tagged in the post, myself nor the Farmville PD would not have had any idea about the concerns. If you have questions, concerns, or would like actual facts about this incident or any other, please contact the Farmville PD.
