Wise Owl ordered to get quarantine permit

Posted: Updated:

Guam - It seems Wise Owl Animal Clinic owner Dr. Joel Joseph will have to wait longer before he can get approval to operate a quarantine facility at his Tamuning clinic. Dr. Joseph tells KUAM News that the Department of Agriculture's inspection of his facility was canceled today after agriculture officials notified him that he now needs a building permit from the Department of Public Works.

Dr. Joseph says he was told six years ago by DPW that he did not need a permit for a quarantine facility, and today he says he was told the same thing by agency officials. Despite being informed of Joseph's situation, Department of Agriculture director Mariquita Taitague tells KUAM the law requires all quarantine facilities to have a building permit.

She adds they will conduct an inspection of his facility only after he turns in a permit.
