Montgomery County, TN – Montgomery County Animal Care and Control is pleased to celebrate one year of partnering with the 72nd Medical Detachment Veterinary Service Support, which is part of the 86th Combat Support Hospital.
Not only have these military heroes examined and treated many homeless animals in the last year, but they have now added spaying and neutering so the animals will be adopted quicker.
Jeanette Farrell, animal control director states, “We are thrilled to work with the team of the 72nd Medical Detachment Veterinary Service Support to help save animals in our community. We are grateful for the support and dedication of these soldiers to our country and for their dedication to the homeless animals that need their help.”
The partnership with the 72nd Medical Detachment Veterinary Service Support is expected to be a long-term partnership for the benefit in helping to care for and control the animal population in Montgomery County. Partnering with the community is not something new for the 72nd.
Earlier this year they partnered with Austin Peay State University (APSU) Students by participating in a goat production laboratory at APSU’s Farm and Environmental Education Center.
CPT Melissa North said, “I’m very grateful to Montgomery County Animal Care and Control for allowing us the opportunity to help the local animal community. This partnership allows us to practice quality veterinary surgical skills and benefits the adoptions process.”
