Wetaskiwin RCMP

On the night of June 30th, 2016, the Wetaskiwin RCMP had a very unusual prisoner. That evening some concerned citizens brought a dog they found to the detachment. Common practice is for the police to take any found animals to the city shelter to be cared for, however their holding cells are outside. Being the long weekend police were not sure that there would be anyone attending to the K9 the next morning. With the cold and unfavorable weather that night the officers decided it was best to keep the K9 in their warm indoor holding cells where he could be closely monitored. The next morning police were able to locate the registered owner and the two were happily reunited.

Remember to register you pets with the city so that you too can happily be reunited should the two of you be separated.
