That number provides recorded information on topics such as the Montgomery County Animal Shelter hours and location, adoption and licensing procedures, rabies clinics and low-cost neutering.

Dog accused of attack: Monarch Vista Dr., 13600 block, Germantown, Aug. 18. A resident reported that a neighbor’s German shepherd-type dog attacked the resident’s mixed breed dog, which required veterinary care for its injuries. The owner of the German shepherd denied recollection of the attack, or of the German shepherd having contact with another dog. The injured dog’s owner requested an affidavit to pursue the matter further. If the affidavit is returned, citations will be issued for the dog being loose and for unwanted contact, which carry fines of $100 and $500, respectively. The German shepherd could also be declared potentially dangerous.
