Brenham Animal Services has a new vehicle in tow to serve citizens.
Animal Services’ new Community Outreach Vehicle hit the streets of Brenham last week, after being repurposed from use with the Brenham Police Department. The vehicle, a 2013 Chevy Tahoe, will be used for purposes like transporting animals and responding to welfare concern calls, and will also be on display at community events.
Animal Services Manager Allison Harper says the goal was to have a vehicle that is more approachable for the public, while also helping to shed light on what Brenham Animal Services does.
The vehicle was previously used by the Brenham Police Department’s K-9 Unit, but in September, K-9 Robbie and her handler, Officer Andrew Adams, retired. The vehicle already comes equipped with an enclosure to hold animals during transport.
Harper hopes that this vehicle can help put residents at ease, especially in circumstances that they may consider uncomfortable.
The Tahoe was wrapped in green and blue using community donations. Harper said Animal Services received the vehicle about six or eight weeks ago, and after being wrapped, it was ready for use last Friday.
