Supporters of the Marshall County Animal Shelter/Humane Society Agreement
We the undersigned believe it would be in the best interest of the Marshall County taxpayers and for the welfare of animals in the community to accept the Humane Society's Proposed lease of their facility located on US Highway 68 East to the County Animal Shelter. We believe spending taxpayer money to add on to the existing center is not the best option for the county when there is a free building already constructed. We also believe it should be dually considered that while the county 'saves' up the money for a possible expansion, animals will be put down due to a lack of space as the facility has been at capacity a majority of this year. We urge the Fiscal Court to reconsider the motion to enter into the lease agreement with the Humane Society, forming a valuable new partnership which will address both the animal control and spay/neuter issue in the county.
