ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. - The Elizabethton-Carter County Animal Shelter is hoping for a new home for animals.
About five bids came in to construct a new $500,000 and 2,700 square feet facility for the animal shelter.
News 5 stopped in at the current shelter and learned a nicer building would provide healthier conditions for animals. "There is a rodent issue at the current facility and drainage, and things like that. All of that will be addressed in the new facility," said April Jones, Shelter Director.
News 5 learned with a new facility, the shelter would be able to house more animals. Currently the Elizabethton-Carter County Animal Shelter takes in about 500 dogs and cats each month.
