One of the new weekly features on the WDEA website will be a series of pet tips. WDEA's Chris Popper was joined by Diana de los Santos, the Director of the SPCA of Hancock County.

In this week, we talked about why it's not a good idea to let your dog off the leash this time of the year. We also talked about what you should do if your dog becomes lost. Steps include calling the local police department, posting on social media, including MDI Lost/Found Pet Alert. Additionally, we will make the WDEA webpage available to you, and will post the information on our webpage and facebook page and share it for you. If you find that your pet is lost in the MDI, Ellsworth, Bangor area, please call Chris Popper at 2017-469-8660 and email the information to him at
