MetroAtlanta Ambulance Donates Stretcher to Animal Control, Shelter

The stretcher, valued at $6,500, will allow the animals to be transported safely without causing further injury.

On Jan. 24, MetroAtlanta Ambulance Service answered the call to help 
out the Paulding County Animal Shelter. Many times the Animal Control Officers have to hand carry injured animals when transporting to and from locations as well as within the shelter. The stretcher, valued at $6,500, will allow the animals to be transported safely without causing further injury.

The Officers and employees handling the animals will also be more protected from reactions animals have when they are scared or in extreme pain.

MetroAtlanta Ambulance Operations Manager, Karen Robinson was contacted by Sgt. Lenny Carr of the Paulding Marshal Bureau and inquired if there were any used stretchers that may be available.

MetroAtlanta Ambulance Service came through and this stretcher will ensure a better quality of life for shelter animals and employees.
