Animals love reduction of LHS services

In order to prevent a possible $33.5 million deficit over the next 10 years, the city of Loveland will be reducing its contract with the Larimer Humane Society, which provides animal protection and control services, by 20 percent.
Residents of Loveland should make note of the reductions, changes and prioritization of calls, which go into effect Jan. 1.
Perhaps most notable, field service will go from multiple LHS officers patrolling seven days a week down to one officer patrolling five days a week for eight hours per day, which is better than hearing, “Here, puppy, here.”
So, dawg, if now you have a run-in with “the fuzz” and they call in for assistance, you will be a top priority for animal control. Bad dog!
But if you’re out chasing cars and get injured or appear to have rabies, you just dropped down to a Level 2 priority. Felines stuck in trees will have to call from a rotary phone to be considered for rescue.
If you like to bark, er, talk, really loud and late into the night, or cases of your human not obediently cleaning up after you will be treated as bottom-level priorities.
Old dogs: perhaps you can figure out why the most worthy reasons to call in a complaint to LHS are considered the least pressing.
