At Monday’s workshop, county resident Jim Slusher said the closure of the Adrion W. Baird Animal Shelter April 11 has left stray animals without help.
“There’s no one to call,” Slusher said. “In my neighborhood alone, I’ve counted three dead cats, and three stray dogs have been dropped on us.”
Two of the dogs starved to death, but one was taken in by Slusher’s neighbor, he said.
Slusher referenced Noah’s ark, and said people are responsible to take care of animals.
