MITCHELL CO., GA (WALB) -

Mitchell County could be home to a rescue shelter in the near future.

Tonight "animal lovers" came together in downtown Camilla to start making plans for the new non-profit shelter.
This comes after 22 cats and 25 dogs were euthanized at Mitchell County Animal control.
Organizers say they have someone to file the paperwork, and they're working to get volunteers.

"What we're doing tonight is we're trying to get everyone to make a commitment,” said Janet Goree, Animal Lover/Rescuer. “Would you be willing to come and volunteer with the animals or would you like to do fundraising, that kind of thing. We have everything in place to step in and get this rescue up and running."

Organizers will present their plan during the County Commission meeting on Tuesday at 6 p.m.
