CAIRO, GA (WALB) -

Grady County commissioners may soon come to the rescue of a closed animal shelter.

Locked doors and an empty parking lot. Second Chance Animal Rescue has officially closed in Cairo but the community is still actively working to bring it back.

"We're proud of them, we want them to stay in business. So I just lent myself to see what I could do to help the situation," said T.D. David, Grady County Commissioner.

A love for animals is really the driving force behind David's proposal to his fellow commissioners in Grady County.

"The only thing that I felt or envisioned that maybe we could do was involve the county to the degree that maybe we could help out temporarily," said David.

They are working to find a new facility or any way to bring in funding for the shelter.

"All we need to do is go to the people and I think they will respond," said David.

SCAR worked hard for the past four years serving Grady county to re-home unwanted and abandoned dogs.

When WALB spoke with owner Mollie Johnson on the phone she said she is just hopeful that the commissioners will come together to help them out.

"They've helped us throughout the years so now its time for us to come to their rescue," said David.

David plans to approach the commission on his proposal at their meeting next week.
