Animal shelter in stimulus request

For every three animals brought to the county’s animal shelter, on average, one of them is adopted out.

The other two are euthanized, said Tracy Holiday, president of the board of the Baldwin Animal Rescue Center, a private group whose members work with the public facility on Baldwin County 49 near the county’s Magnolia Landfill

Baldwin County commissioners put the shelter on their list of proposed projects for federal stimulus package money. But the $4 million shelter is listed after several county road projects in the “secondary priority” category. It was pitched in part because the bill was designed to help projects far enough along in the planning stages to begin quickly.
