Commission to address Quincy's animal control

Yellow lab confiscated by Quincy Police Department on January 30

The Quincy Animal Control Commission will meet Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. in the city council chambers.

Several area residents are expected to turn out for the meeting to discuss animal control issues.

The meeting comes after

Quincy police confiscated an emaciated yellow lab

from a home on the city's south side January 30.

Several concerned residents told KHQA they had complained to the police department about the dog at 725 South 6th Street for years.

Complaints ranged from the dog not receiving adequate nutrition, being left out in extreme frigid and hot temperatures and not having a long enough tether.

The Quincy Police Department has one officer dedicated to animal control after the city cut one of its animal control officers in 2012.

The meeting is open to the public.
