Come in and meet her if you are looking for a more settled dog. Georgia is spayed/neutered and up to date with routine shots.

PETERSBURG – Committeeman Tony Inserra said Monday that he was disappointed with the response of the township’s animal control service after a hawk flew into his vehicle while driving on the Parkway in Somers Point.

The incident led him to abstain last month from a vote renewing a contract with Shore Veterinarians to provide animal control services in Upper Township, he said.

But Dr. Nick Holland of Shore Veterinarians in Seaville said that when Inserra called his offices they notified Somers Point police dispatchers and animal control. They said he could wait for animal control to arrive there or he could come to their office in Seaville, Holland said.
