Warren County Animal Control and Adoption Center has been accepting the help of volunteers. Facility director Kim Pettrey would like to lower the age limit on volunteers from 18 to 15 to allow more high school students to complete required community service hours there.

Warren County is considering a request to lower the age limit of volunteers at its Animal Control facility. “A lot of parents have called wanting to know if their children can volunteer with us in order to complete their community service hours,” said Warren County Animal Control and Adoption Center director Kim Pettrey. “Most of them are 17, almost 18.”The county began encouraging Animal Control volunteers in 2013.
