Animal shelter officially dedicates new presentation shelter

Less than a decade ago, the Shelbyville/Shelby County Animal Shelter building was nearing condemnation.

In the years prior to that, animals were euthanized because there simply was not enough space to house all of them.

Those days are long gone now to a city and county partnership that helped construct a larger facility to safely house all of the animals and, now, through a generous donation, the organization has its own presentation shelter on site that can be used for many purposes, including celebrating those that have adopted from the animal shelter.
