GETTING OUT: Animal Shelter Forced To Move
A northwest Iowa animal shelter is running out of time. Organizers have until the end of the month to find a new home.
Robert Donahoo, City Administrator says, “The location they’re on is in a main street business, where they share common walls with other businesses, isn’t an ideal place for storing animals.”
Because of odor complaints, Pocahontas city leaders say the Humane Society Shelter must make a move. The shelter has another location available, but is $15,000 shy of the money needed to make required improvements.
City leaders rejected a proposal to allow the shelter to stay in its current location through the end of the year.
If the shelter isn’t out by October 1st, it could face fines of $500 per day.
