The Moore County Sheriff’s Office has partnered with the Moore County Dog Tags program intended to pair wounded soldiers with dogs. Soldiers are taught how to train Animal Services animals, so they are more likely to be adopted.
The curriculum includes proper handling of dogs, how to manage an aggressive dog, basic obedience training, insurance issues, information about search and rescue dogs, and careers associated with dogs.
Moore County Sheriff Neil Godfrey stated “the Dog Tags program benefits the soldiers, the dogs, and Moore County families who adopt these dogs. It’s an honor for the Moore County Sheriff’s Office to work alongside heroes that have given so much to our country and now to our community.”
Participating Dog Tags animals will be marked accordingly and made available for adoption. Soldiers participating in the Dog Tags program meet every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30-8:00 pm.
To learn more about the program or adopting one of the furry friends, please contact the Moore County Sheriff’s Office Animal Services Center at (910) 947-2858 or visit website at: https://www.moorecountync.gov/sheriff.
