COUNTY FINALIZES ACQUISITION OF LAND FOR NEW ANIMAL SHELTER 

LONG TIME ANIMAL SHELTER SUPPORTERS MIKE AND CAROL GLENN DONATE PROPERTY AS SITE FOR  ANIMAL SHELTER
 
On Thursday, Anderson County officials witnessed the deed transfer of 12.26 acres on Highway 29 South from owners Mike and Carol Glenn to Anderson County. The acreage will be the site of the new 22,000 sq. ft. Animal Shelter. The bidding process for facility construction is complete. Since the bid exceeds $10,000, County Council will vote on whether to accept the bid during their next scheduled meeting. Once approved, the construction process is anticipated to take between 12-18 months.
 
“We are grateful to Mr. and Mrs. Glenn for their generous donation,” said Anderson County Councilman Tommy Dunn. “It is refreshing to see residents care enough to get involved. The Glenn’s have made a lasting impact on the future of Anderson County’s animals. I hope their example will lead others to do the same.”
 
“Many of the positive things that have taken place at the Animal Shelter can be directly attributed to Mr. and Mrs. Glenn,” said Anderson County Environmental Services Director Greg Smith. “Many pets have found homes because we were able to transport them to various locations with the adoption trailer, which was donated by the Glenn’s. Their constant assistance has come in the form of pet food, money and time. The property on Hwy 29 S will help us better meet the needs of the County’s animals, while providing quality and consistent services to the residents of the Anderson County.”
