Have you lost your Honey Bear?

The Grass Valley Animal Control is asking for help in locating the owner of a golden retriever found last week near Highway 174 and East Empire Street.

On Thursday, March 11, shortly before 11 a.m., Grass Valley Animal Control took possession of the injured dog that had been discovered by a passing motorist near the intersection of Highway 174 and East Empire Street in Nevada County, just east of Grass Valley.

It is believed that the dog may have been struck by a vehicle, sustaining minor injuries. Animal Control Officer Jean Allgood took charge of the dog and transported it to a local veterinarian’s office for treatment.

The dog was returned to the Grass Valley Animal Shelter for recovery pending identification of an owner.

Senior Animal Control Officer Roger Waina on Monday said the dog, Honey Bear, was active and alert at the shelter.

“It is my guess that Honey Bear resides in the area and that the owner may not be aware that she is in Grass Valley,” Waina said.

Honey Bear is an adult, female golden retriever, about 4 to 5 years old. She is very friendly and loves to be around people.

Anyone who may be familiar with Honey Bear or her owners is encouraged to contact the Grass Valley Animal Shelter at (530) 477-4630 or the Grass Valley Police Department at (530) 477-4600.
