In January 2021, Hamilton County Dog Warden Captain Brandon Corcoran, helped secure a conviction in the case of Romee, a puppy who was severely burned. The case was brought to the Warden’s attention by Dr. Tammie Smith at Anderson Hills Animal Care Hospital, was swiftly investigated and successfully prosecuted.
After more than 50 procedures, Romee continues to heal nicely and is being trained to become a therapy dog for children in burn units. Cincinnati Animal CARE is assisting with donations towards Romee’s recovery with Dr. Smith, who is continuing with his treatment.
“We are thankful and privileged to have Captain Corcoran representing our Dog Wardens and being a voice for animals in need,” said Ray Anderson, Media and Community Relations Manager for Cincinnati Animal CARE Humane Society, Hamilton County’s animal shelter. “Our Wardens take cases of neglect and abuse extremely seriously and will pursue cases vigorously to achieve justice.”
Romee has since been adopted by a family member of his care team at Anderson Hills Animal Care Hospital.
Cincinnati Animal CARE Humane Society’s vision is to reunite lost companion pets, reduce the stray population, offer opportunities for unwanted animals to be adopted or rescued and provide the public with information and programs for responsible pet ownership in Hamilton County Ohio.
