Family members of the late Bill McCart gathered together at Arlington Animal Services (AAS) to see the new plaque honoring their loved one for his 22 years of dedicated service to the City of Arlington, its residents, and the homeless animals of our community.

Vicki Mize, one of McCart's daughters, spoke of her father's dedication to volunteering at the animal shelter and his intense desire for people to be responsible pet owners.

Shelter staff reminisced about McCart - affectionately referring to him as "Mr. Bill" as having a quick, dry sense of humor never fails to make people laugh. Former shelter supervisor, Art Tawater shared fond memories of this super extraordinaire volunteer and friend stating that "everyone looked forward to having him at the shelter and he is greatly missed." Administrative Coordinator for Kennels Lynn Trotter shared that Mr. Bill "had a great sense of humor, was helpful with people that came to the shelter, and encouraged them to adopt." Trotter said everyone always looked forward to Mr. Bill coming into volunteer.

The family was led on a tour of AAS by Community Services Educator Chris Huff who also remembers Mr. Bill fondly. It was evident that the family members share their passed loved one's appreciation of animals.
