Richmond Heights officers rescue dog hit on highway

Richmond Heights Police officers Amy Loftus and Jeremy Matlock on Tuesday responded to Inerstate-64 for a dog hit by a car, according to the department’s Facebook page.

Several lanes were closed while the officers, with the help of a citizen, put the dog in a police car and took him to a nearby animal protective facility where he is being treated for scrapes and a hip injury. The latest report is that ‘Duke’ is doing very well.

Officer Matlock is Richmond Heights’ newest officer. He was sworn in at a city council meeting in February.
