Pearl PD awarded for saving dogs

Local News

Two dogs are alive because of Pearl Police and today the department was recogonized for an officer’s quick action.

In march, two great danes were discovered at a house in Pearl, where they had been starved to the brink of death.

Neighbors called police when they notice the emaciated dogs. Animal control and protection officer Marshall Steen responded and removed the dogs.

Kelly Collins of Rescue Revolution of Mississippi said “the neighbors were concerned when they saw the black one laying on the ground and they could see his pelvis bones. Pictures were taken and they called animal control.”

Doll Stanley, the director of Justice for Animals campaign, presented the award to the department, on behalf of officer Steen, who couldn’t be present, saying “we are really pleased to be presenting an award to the City of Pearl for their amazing work. The animals are ours and we need to protect them.” 

“And the officers that are doing a stellar job, we should make sure that everybody knows what a great job they’re doing,” she added.

The gentle-giant, great dane pair is recovering; One going from just 75-pounds, to 120-pounds!

They are in separate foster homes at this time.
