ANIMAL ABUSE AND CRUELTY
- We have diligently investigated the cases brought to our attention by Lee County Domestic Animal Services, with whom we work hand-in-hand, and will continue to make it clear that animal abuse and animal cruelty will not be tolerated in this county.
- With the generous assistance of Lamar Advertising, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office has placed numerous billboards around the county indicating that any form of animal abuse or cruelty would result in jail time.
- Sheriff Carmine Marceno’s “Deputy Dogs” program, including Deputy Chance and agency Bloodhounds, tours the county promoting the Sheriff’s “zero tolerance for animal abuse” message.
- With the assistance of the Office of the State Attorney, abusers have been prosecuted and punished for their actions.
