    Loudoun County Animal Control Officer receives Valor Award

    A Loudoun County Animal Control Officer was honored with a Valor Award for her role in the seizure of 10 dogs on the Dulles Greenway in December.

    Angela Chan, Loudoun County’s Lead Animal Control Officer, was recognized by the Virginia Animal Control Association. Chan is the recipient of the organization’s Valor Award for her role in the seizure of ten dogs on the Dulles Greenway in September.

    The Valor Award is given by the Virginia Animal Control Association to an officer who has demonstrated exceptional performance and bravery in the line of duty during a difficult or dangerous assignment.

    Chan was nominated for the Valor Award because of her courageous work in the seizure of 10 pit bull-type dogs on the Greenway on Sept. 7, said Tom Koenig, director of the Department of Animal Services. The case led to the arrest and conviction of a Georgia man. The General District Court awarded custody of the dogs to the Department of Animal Services.

    “We are so proud of Officer Chan’s outstanding work in this case which is typical of her courage and commitment to protecting the animals in our community,” Koenig said.

    The Loudoun County Department of Animal Services is at 39820 Charles Town Pike, Waterford.  Animal Services can be reached seven days a week by calling 703-777-0406. More information is online at http://www.loudoun.gov/animals

    While I’m usually at odds with Frank J’s comments, (but not Frank J. himself as I do not know him,) I’m with him here and think this article could have used a lot more photos of the honoree!


    Congratulations.  People in animal welfare professions often don’t get the respect they deserve.  I’ve had very good relations with the Animal Control staff, and Chan is clearly an exemplary officer.


    Congratulations and thank You for your public service !


    I’ve got a racoon in my yard. Please send officer Chan.
    No, no… not someone else. Officer Chan please.
