Tina Updegrove’s first day as the Loess Hills Humane Society’s animal control officer was March 13.
But that was not the Red Oak native’s first day as an animal control officer. Updegrove brings with her a wealth of experience after 16 years in the field. For 13 years, Updegrove served as an animal control officer and animal cruelty investigator at the Nebraska Humane Society. For the two years prior to joining Loess Hills, she was working with the Animal Rescue League in Des Moines.
