Phone 3910 According to a popular concept -^-the dog is man's best friend— but to the Mason City police department, confronted with about 45 to 50 stray and homeless canines monthly, this proverb might not be acceptable. The department disposes, in a humane manner, of all dogs discovered or reported to be homeless. All apparently valuable dogs, including those licensed, are detained at a local veterinarians for a period of time pending claiming by owners. In the event a valuable dog isn't claimed, the police department then consults its list of persons who have expressed a desire to acquire a homeless dog. If owners don't claim lost dogs or a home isn't provided by other persons, the dogs are then disposed of. All unlicensed dogs encountered unleashed are taken into custody. In Cerro Gordo county it is impossible to secure a license for a female dog, and as a result, no female is authorized to run free. The department has found that this individual disposition of dogs is vastly superior and more efficient than the city pound system formerly employed. "First of all, a pound necessitates some escape proof enclosure," Capt. Leo Risacher said. "Then, we were always troubled by persons entering the detention place at night and liberating the captured dogs," he continued. Under the present plan, Risacher explained, it isn't necessary to engage a dog catcher—his duties are being performed by the police department—and the need for a pound is precluded. Thus, the tax payers are saving money xvhile the duties are being efficiently performed.
