DOGS has lost a good friend. Russ Pope has passed away, losing his battle with cancer. An Animal Cruelty Investigator and a Special Deputy, he first became involved with DOGS in the 90s, when he and DOGS worked together to fight an attempt to pass a statewide mandatory spay/neuter law. Over the years, he testified in Concord many times always bringing his knowledge of animal husbandry and his experience in law enforcement to make sure that laws that were passed were reasonable. He will be missed. Donations may be sent to River Valley Animal Protection League in Charlestown, NH.
Russ Pope, 1949-2012
