Animal control saw increased revenue

St. Joseph County animal control director Tom Miller said the department saw a revenue increase from 2011 to 2012.

In addition, Miller said fewer dogs were euthanized in 2012 compared to 2011.

Miller addressed the St. Joseph County Board of Commissioner Tuesday, presenting to the five-member panel his annual report.

The department euthanized 111 dogs last year, 77 fewer than it did in 2011. As far as revenue, Miller said the department took in more than $132,000 last year. That marked an increase from $117,000 in 2011.

About $20,000 was secured through donations; more than $88,000 from dog kennel and license fees.
