The Pulaski County Commissioners continue to work toward a solution for housing unwanted animals.
President of the Commissioners Larry Brady visited the Starke County Humane Society and discussed the possibility of working out a formal agreement to house animals. While there had been one in the past, there’s no contract right now. Brady indicated that the Humane Society gets more crowded during the spring and fall seasons, but sees lower numbers of animals at other times of the year.
Commissioner Terry Young agreed with the idea of developing a contract, but thought Pulaski County should still build its own temporary holding facility for animals. Both said they would try to figure out how much such a facility would cost.
Additionally, Sheriff Jeff Richwine provided some statistics of animal control calls. He said so far this year, there have been a total of 233 calls, with 65 coming from Winamac, eight from Medaryville, and three from Monterey.
