Seated Valerie Cote. Standing: Co-hosts Sarah O'Connell, Jonah Triebwasser

Union Vale’s Dog Control Officer Valerie Cote describes her role as Dog Warden, mainly finding stray dogs running loose and enforcing licensing regulations. She explains the dangers of dogs on the loose, the best way to help ensure their safe return, and what happens to unclaimed dogs. Providing helpful information about what owners should do when their pets go missing, she corrects misinformation along the way—answering questions such as such as “Do old dogs really wander away to die?”. Ms. Cote emphasizes the “reputable rescue” aspect of her work and her hope that more people will consider adopting pets now living in shelters.
