Putnam County postal office to be renamed to memorialize life of rural mail carrier fatally attacked by dogs

Share via

MELROSE, Fla. – A postal office in Melrose will be renamed to honor the life of a mail carrier who was fatally mauled by a pack of dogs in Putnam County in 2022.

When Pam Rock’s postal car broke down on Aug. 21, 2022, while she was delivering mail on a dirt road, five dogs escaped their fenced-in yard and attacked her. The dogs’ owner had previously tried unsuccessfully to surrender them to animal control.

She was 61 years old.

H.R. 3947 was signed into legislation Thursday and will change the name of the United States Postal Facility on 859 North State Road 21 to the Pamela Jane Rock Post Office Building.
