Happy Ending For Dog Pictured Being Dragged Along By Rowan County Animal Control Officer

In a recent article by Elisa on the concerns regarding animal welfare at Rowan County Animal Control, a photograph showed a dog being dragged along rough tarmaced ground by his neck with an animal grasper. The person dragging the dog appears to be an animal control officer.

It is believed that this dog is now living in a loving home and his name is Jesse. He was adopted from Fayetteville Animal Protection Society (FAPS). FAPS received or inherited Jesse with three other feral dogs and is a mixed Tibetan Terrier.

I was pleased be receive an email by the person who adopted Jesse who told me about Jesse’s story with a happy ending. Jesse has a dog companion: AJ who is a Norfolk Terrier….

I feel it is quite important to provide follow-ups where possible on stories especially when the ending is a good one. My thanks to Mike, the person who contacted me.

  1. I live in Salisbury, Rowan County, NC and would like confirmation on this story before I proceed to contact local groups to get rid of ‘officer’. Thank You, Marilyn Harrison
