Good News About Animals
There's a lot going on at Greenfield Animal Control: Wayne Guinn, the third person to leave the job in a little more than two years, resigned last Thursday with no explanation. Administrative assistant Misty Dean was fired the same day, and there's a police investigation involved in her departure.

Dogs and cats don't mind if you are messy, in fact,…Continue
