Growing Concern Over Animal Shelter In Jefferson County Has Many Looking For Answers


There’s continuing concern from some people in Jefferson County over the animal shelter, mostly dealing with when the shelter is considered too full to accept any more animals.

Those concerns were addressed Thursday morning at the County Commissioners meeting where Humane Society representative Sally Wehr spoke to the good care the animals but questioned the Dog Warden’s digression, who has authority to say if and when the shelter is full.

Commissioners’ Chairman Doctor Thomas Graham, says there is a process to follow at the shelter, and is confident issues will be resolved.

“I believe we are getting all of the bugs fixed as far as making that relationship work.  We have full confidence in the Humane Society and we also have full confidence in our new dog warden. We believe he is doing an excellent job,” said Graham.

Graham adds the Humane Society is a contracted entity, and there are limits to what they can do, but their contract limits can always be readdressed.
