Tallahassee FL- A debate over one counties budget has animal advocates up in arms in one local county.
During the Wakulla County Commission meeting tonight dozens of people spoke out in support of the local Animal Control. All after the commission held a workshop to discuss the new direction the animal control was taking in the county. Recently the adoption agency in the county backed out of negotiations with Animal Control-- so the control is using rescues to outsource their adoptions.
Their director says they are doing the best they can. The Wakulla County Animal Control Director Ivanhoe Carroll explained, "Well I think that they have learned that we are doing a spectacular job with very limited resources. I mean-- $187,00 for 24/7 365."
Carroll told us she hopes they will be able to open up the adoption center sometime soon with another adoption organization running it. But if that doesn't work out they hope to run the facility themselves.
