Progress is gradually continuing to be made on the Coosa County Animal Shelter thanks to the assistance and hard work of volunteers.
It is still hoped that the shelter, which will be located in Stewartville in the old fire department building, will be ready to open in December. Work done on the facility over the last two weeks includes tearing out the rotten framing of the restrooms with a tractor, performing roofing work and removing debris.
Dennis Hill, operations manager and chair of the Animal Shelter Board of Directors, thanks Mark Yancey for driving the tractor to tear down the framing, as well as J.M. Cobb and Gordon Gogan for helping. He also extends gratitude to Tyler for assisting with debris removal and Barry McCain, Jesse Leonard and Adam Reeves for doing the roofing work.
Hill stated, “Work is proceeding on schedule and on budget thanks to these gentlemen involved, plus outstanding support by Ronnie Joiner.”
Hill said that upcoming work to be done at the shelter includes window work, electrical and plumbing. He said that kennels will be installed in late October, and they will begin painting the facility in November.
