Canine Rescued with Support from Local Businesses
Lodged Beneath Car, Released After Vet Check
On the evening of Tuesday, January 23, Lebanon Police responded to a report of a motor vehicle collision. Upon arrival, it was discovered a vehicle had struck a canine when it jumped out of another vehicle. The canine did not appear to be injured but became lodged underneath the vehicle and the people and officers on scene were not able to free it, reported Lebanon Police Chief Richard Mello.
Lebanon Police reached out to Midnight Auto Recovery Services, which responded to the scene and was able to assist in freeing the canine. The canine was then transported to the Stonecliff Animal Hospital where Dr. Dan Kelly examined the canine; it was later released back to its owner.
"Lebanon Police would like to acknowledge the generosity and cooperation provided by Midnight Auto Recovery Services and Stonecliff Animal Hospital, who both provided their services free of charge,” said Mello. “This was truly a community effort with a successful conclusion.”
