BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) -- A county commissioner in coastal Brunswick is trying to rally pet lovers to privately fund improvements to the county-operated animal shelter.

The Florida Times-Union reports a vocal group of animal advocates in Glynn County have been calling to reduce the number of dogs and cats euthanized at the local shelter. County Commissioner Bob Coleman says to accomplish a long term goal of having a no-kill shelter, the facility needs at minimum more space and better ventilation.

However, most commissioners have opposed raising the shelter's $420,000 budget. So Coleman says he wants citizens to donate the money. He's asked contractors and an architect to devise an expansion proposal and cost estimate.

A two-term commissioner, Coleman says he has a soft heart and "it doesn't take much to make me cry."
