Mount Morris, N.Y., Nov. 13, 2023 – Livingston County Dog Control is asking for the community’s help as it is actively seeking volunteers to assist with various day-to-day tasks including walking, cleaning up after, feeding and playing with dogs to help prepare them for adoption.
Livingston County has a long tradition of extending help and volunteering. Livingston County Medical Reserve Corps volunteers have provided significant time planning and preparing for both man-made and natural disasters including hurricanes, tornadoes, biological attacks, mass casualty incidents and pandemics. The MRC unit participates in large scale exercises with community partners to ensure efficient and effective collaboration and operations, which in turn helps the community to prepare for future public health emergencies.
Current members of the Medical Reserve Corps, or those seeking to join, are able to assist dog control with a variety of tasks. Those who are not members of the MRC are still able to volunteer, however, duties may be restricted to walking and socializing with the dogs.
Livingston County Dog Control appreciates all volunteer time and energy- and the dogs do, too. Spending time with the dogs can help them become better socialized and more adoptable. To see the full list of adoptable or missing dogs, please visit Livingston County Dog Control on Facebook.
Are you interested in volunteering or joining the Medical Reserve Corps? To join, call (585) 243-7299 or visit the Livingston County Medical Reserve Corps website. If you prefer to volunteer independently, please call Livingston County Dog Control in advance to make sure there are dogs that need to be walked at (585) 243-6740.
