Animal Control and Bus Transportation
By Sue Dyer
The Town of Norfolk has a new animal control officer, Lauren Foley, whom we share with North Canaan. She can be reached by calling 860-824-7796 or 860-921-1372.
By state statute, if your pet is picked up and impounded by Lauren Foley or her assistant, Jesse Warner, you will be responsible for a minimum fee of $15. The fee is higher if the animal remains in the kennel overnight. To pick up your dog, you will have to provide proof that the dog has been registered and is up to date with its shots.
And don’t forget that Northwest Transit is providing bus service for individuals in town on Tuesdays and Wednesdays each week. To take advantage of this service, call 860-489-2535 to make an appointment. Please make your reservation at least one day in advance of your planned ride.
