“They made my whole Christmas better”

Jefferson Country Animal Control responded to my home on Christmas day because I had a raccoon that fell through my ceiling. The technician was very professional and removed the raccoon within 30 minutes. They were very careful not to injure the raccoon and not to damage my extremely expensive table the raccoon was hiding under. Thank you for a job well done!
