OTTAWA — County commissioners told juvenile detention director Ethel Wallace to buy dog food on the county’s tab. During a budget session Tuesday, commissioners were surprised to find out that Wallace and a teacher at the juvenile detention center were buying dog food out of their own pockets for dogs at the juvenile center. The dogs are part of a new program in which the juveniles learn responsibility and concern for others by training and taking care of unwanted dogs from the Bea Martin Peck Animal Shelter.
The success of the program was featured on a recent Community Perspective, the Sunday morning public affairs show produced by KOFO News.
