HOWLAND - Dogs at the Trumbull County Dog Kennel have a new place to run as an exercise area was recently dedicated at the Anderson Avenue location.
Gwen Logan, county dog warden, said the new space has been created at the kennel in honor of Holly Jordan, who volunteers at the kennel.
A sign posted on the 40-by-60-foot fenced-in area behind the kennel is called Jordan's Run. The sign says: "To Who's Dedication Knows No Bounds."
Jordan said she has a passion for dogs and said many are victim simply need someone who loves them and cares for them.
"The area allows for the dogs to run and fetch balls. This will be great for the dogs, especially the young ones, who need the exercise," she said.
Logan said the new area will be used for training, temperament testing and obedience evaluations. The testing is done to see if the dogs qualify for the prison agility program
Trumbull County Commissioner Frank Fuda presented a special plaque to Jordan.
"Everyone worked together on the project," Logan said.
Tim Morgan, chief deputy dog warden, and others surprised Jordan by covering the sign until the final dedication with her helping to remove the covering from the main gate.
Jordan, named a deputy dog warden in December 2010, formerly worked as a nurse.
