Animal Control extends hours

Warren County Animal Control is hoping to become more community friendly by having extended hours on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Animal Control director Kim Pettrey said, “Many people get off work when we are closing. This way, they will have time to come to the facility, look around, and pick out an animal to adopt. We want the extra hours to be used by people wanting to come in and adopt a pet or by people looking for their lost pet.”
New Animal Control hours are:
• Monday 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.
• Tuesday 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.
• Wednesday 8 a.m. - 7 p.m.
• Thursday 8 a.m. - 7 p.m.
• Friday 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.
• Saturday 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Commissioner Sally Brock told members of the Health and Welfare Committee she has been going through Animal Control volunteer applications and is almost ready for volunteers to help out at the facility.
“I have some calls to make because we have had some forms filled out,” said Brock. “I have a couple of really good applicants. I am looking for a computer guru. And, I’m also looking for someone who will answer the phones for them so they won’t have to.”
Volunteer forms are available at County Executive John Pelham’s office in the administrative building. Forms are to be returned to Pelham’s office.
