Animal Control to only take stray pets
Placeholder Image
Warren County Animal Control will no longer accept owner surrender animals until the full Warren County Commission can consider a policy change that might include a fee for the care of the animal.The unanimous decision was made during a county Health and Welfare Committee meeting Monday night. In attendance were Commissioners Sally Brock, chairperson, Teddy Boyd, Billy Earl Jones, Diane Starkey and Blaine Wilcher.The announcement may sound similar to one made in March when the committee approved a policy at the facility that unwanted pets would no longer be accepted if Animal Control was full of stray animals. Animal Control director Kim Pettrey says she has continued to receive phone calls regarding owners wanting to surrender their pets since March.“We are getting a lot of calls about owner surrenders,” said Pettrey.
