Meeting About Possible New Animal Shelter in Tullahoma

animal-shelterTullahoma area citizens who love man’s best friends are encouraged to attend an informational meeting Thursday, October 15 at 5 pm at CD Stamps Center.
The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the latest updates for a new Animal Shelter. “We have some exciting news to share with the group,” said Mayor Lane Curlee.
“The Friends of the Tullahoma Animal Shelter have been working hard behind the scenes to help make this vision a reality.  I’m eager to help their proposal move forward, and the effort is gaining steam.  For people who love pets, this is an opportunity to get involved and assist with a fundraising effort,” said Mayor Curlee.
“The current facility has served the city well for the last 40 years, said Public Works Director, Wayne Limbaugh. “Now is the time to build a modern facility.”
Anyone is welcome to participate in the meeting, and we are looking for people to help the shelter raise money and organize the Friends of the Tullahoma Animal Shelter Committee.
The Friends of the Tullahoma Animal Shelter members will take on the responsibility of raising funds.
“This meeting will help the Tullahoma Animal Shelter continue its efforts in the community that help save dogs and find them the loving homes they deserve,” said Limbaugh.
“We’re going to build the shelter,” said Curlee. “Everyone I’ve spoken to is in favor of it. Rarely does a project receive so much support. Advocates are pushing hard to get the Shelter built as quickly as possible.”
The Tullahoma Animal Shelter averages about 25 adoptions per month, said Animal Control Manager, Teresa Holt.
