Injured dog’s owner sought

The City of Grass Valley Animal Control is trying to locate the owner of a Golden Retriever named “Honeybear” found about 11 a.m. last Thursday, March 11, near Highway 174 and East Empire Street.

The injured dog was discovered by a motorist and may have been struck by another vehicle, according to police Capt. Rex Marks.

Animal Control Officer Jean Allgood took the dog to a local veterinarian’s office for treatment. Honeybear is alert, active and now recovering at the Grass Valley Animal Shelter, according to Senior Animal Control Officer Roger Waina.

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

Honeybear is described as an adult, female, about 4 to 5 years old. She is very friendly and loves to be with people.

Anyone familiar with Honeybear or her owners is asked to call the Grass Valley Animal Shelter at (530) 477-4630 or the Grass Valley Police Department at (530) 477-4600.
