Sheriff gets recognition for looking out for animals

Alachua County Sheriff Sadie Darnell and her Rural Services Unit will be awarded for the implementation of an animal protection unit this Saturday. Both were nominated by the Neighbor’s Equine Assistance Team founder, Adrienne Hudson. Alachua County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Todd Kelly says, Darnell is well deserving of the award.
Kelly says the animal facility was established in La Crosse a couple of years back in order to house animals under investigation in cases of abuse and neglect.
