Dog without shelter taken for care: Bloomfield Rd., 18700 block, Olney, Dec. 12. A collie-type dog left outside for several hours without shelter was taken into custody by animal services until its owner claimed it. The division received the complaint from a person who thought the animal was not being cared for properly. The dog was eventually returned to the owner, who was cited $500 for violating the county’s shelter requirement. An officer was to monitor the situation.
