Bring him home
Cooper is available for adoption.

After a storm, it is common to find displaced family pets. Warren County Animal Control and Adoption Center currently had at least two of those.
“We had two beagles,” said director Kim Prettrey. “One was found in the area of Delores Market and the other was found in Rock Island.”
Roscoe, as he has been named by Animal Control staff, was featured as Southern Standard’s Pet of the Week on Sunday. His owner did come forward but decided to surrender him to Animal Control for placement into a good home. His real name is Cooper.
“It happens,” said Pettrey, of Cooper’s situation. “Sadly, I had a call from someone what wanted to adopt him but his owner had called and I thought he would be going home. If that person reads this, please give me a call. He’ll make a good pet for someone. He is housebroke and very gentle. He loves to ride in the car. He is afraid of storms. If it storms, he will run away.”
Roscoe, aka Cooper, jumped into a county deputy vehicle when the officer opened the door. The second beagle was found in Rock Island and is still awaiting his owner or adoption.
“The other beagle showed up at someone’s home and they brought it into me as a stray,” said Pettrey. “I’m pretty sure it’s someone’s pet. If you are missing a beagle from Rock Island or any other dog or cat, come see us. Animals not picked up by their owners will be adopted to good homes.”
