SIGNIFICANT PROJECTS AND ACTIVITY
ANIMAL CONTROL: The new facility is operational and the temporary facility is closed. Sue Henson and her staff are planning an Animal Adoption event for Saturday, December 22, 2018 in the new building on Harris Beamer Road. We expect to offer animals for adoption at reduced or no fees and to solicit donations of food and supplies for starter kits to go with the adopted dogs and cats. The goal is to find a home for all of the animals before Christmas.
