National Animal Control Officer Appreciation Week
Sunday marked the beginning of National Animal Control Officer Appreciation Week. And while it’s every day that we’re thankful for the hard work, compassion, and commitment of our Animal Control Officers (ACOs), we want to be sure to make an extra special effort to honor this remarkably talented group of individuals in the week ahead. As a celebration of our ACOs, the CCAS team, along with some help from a few of our local partners, produced this video of appreciation:
To our Field Services team: THANK YOU for the work you do day in and day out to improve the lives of people and animals in Contra Costa County. This week we celebrate you!
About National Animal Control Officer Week
National Animal Control Officer Appreciation Week was created by the National Animal Care and Control Association (NACA) to celebrate the hard work, commitment, and compassion of Animal Control Officers nationwide. Every year, animal control agencies throughout the country celebrate the work of Animal Control Officers during the second full week in April to raise awareness about the unique work they perform and the important role they play in protecting the health and safety of communities. Contra Costa Animal Services joins NACA and animal control agencies across the country in recognizing and celebrating our Animal Control Officers during this week.
