Taylor County will utilize Adair's Green River Animal Shelter

By Larry Smith, FM 92.7 the WAVE and Ed Waggener, CM

The Taylor County Fiscal Court meeting last night, Monday, February 25, 2013, in Campbellsville, KY, voted to send stray dogs and cats to the Green River Animal Shelter in Columbia. GRAS will receive $44 for every animal received.

The action was taken following the recent closing of the Taylor County Animal Shelter in Campbellsville, KY.

Adair County Judge Ann Melton had announced earlier that she is negotiating with Russell County Fiscal Court to have their stray dogs and cats at the Adair County shelter. Issues of overhead costs and contributions are now being addressed in a more equitable manner, she said.

The animal shelter had become a very heavy burden for one county to carry. The deficit had been in the 90 percent plus range, over $90,000, the equivalent of one new bridge a year for Adair County.
