Albany-- Lee County may soon get a much needed animal shelter to house the growing number of animals being taken in by animal control. County Commissioners and Public Works officials met today to look at plans for the new facility, one that will provide room to house the rapid increase in animals that has at times crowded the current make shift facility.
"The Demand has grown to the point the make shift facility we put in place a couple years ago to adopt out more animals, we have out grown that and the demand gotten to the point now where it is time to take the next step and move on to a larger facility William Clark with Lee County Public Works.
The shelter will be constructed near the Lee Public Works facility on highway 32 East and has a tentative completion date of June 2008.
