Placeholder Image
Warren County Animal Control will no longer take unwanted pets if the facility is full to capacity with other animals.Members of the county’s Health and Welfare Committee, along with Warren County Animal Control director Kim Pettrey, agreed Animal Control has enough stray animals to try and adopt out without having to worry about pets that are no longer wanted by their owners.“Word has gotten out that we are working with rescues to adopt out animals and are euthanizing as few animals as possible, so people are bringing their dogs to drop off,” said Pettrey. “We don’t have time for owner surrenders. We are filling up with strays and nuisances.”Commissioner Sally Brock said, “As long as we are full of nuisances and strays, we won’t take animals that people just don’t want anymore.
