Normandy police adopt a shelter dog and assign him to the 911 center


The Norman Police Department recently adopted a furry friend who is now the 911 call center’s therapy dog. This first responder has quite the story. Bella became the first therapy dog ​​in Oklahoma exclusively assigned to a 911 call center. Before joining the Norman Police Department family, she arrived at Animal Welfare in critical condition and weighed just 22 books. While there, the shelter staff decided that Bella was an excellent candidate to be a therapy dog. After six weeks of training, she graduated from the Guardian Angel Program at Mabel Bassett Correctional Facility. Bella is continuing her training outside of the program and will soon be officially certified.
