Decision time for McCracken County Animal Shelter

 It’s decision time for leaders in McCracken County, who need to find a permanent location for their animal shelter.

The McCracken County Fiscal Court gave itself a deadline of Monday, November 10 to figure out whether it’s best to build a new shelter or contract for space with the Humane Society.

The county’s animal shelter was supposed to be temporary and is running low on space ahead of the winter season. A new shelter could cost at least $1 million. That’s why the county has been trying to negotiate a contract with the Humane Society that satisfies both sides.

Outgoing McCracken County Judge-Executive Van Newberry set the deadline for Monday back in October.

We will have the latest on the county’s decision Monday night on Local 6 at 10.
