Letter: Poor service from Animal Control is sad
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

It's pretty sad when you call Salt Lake County Animal Services to get some information on having a loved pet euthanized because of bad health and are put on hold for 30 minutes before even speaking to a live person. It happened to me.

I got someone who couldn't even answer the question, so she transferred the call to someone else who just happened to be away from the desk. At her recorded request I left a short message; she promised to return my call. Well six hours later, I still have no response.

It's a sad state of affairs we live in as taxpayers.
