More Space for Local Dogs
Thursday, 11 June 2009

June 11---The Vidalia Animal Control Shelter now more space for animals courtesy of the Sweet Onion Animal Protection Society (SOAPS).

ImageThursday morning, members of SOAPS, along with city officials had a formal ribbon cutting to celebrate the 12 new pens SOAPS built at the city shelter.

Therisa Ingley, Chairman of SOAPS, says the extra room is the key in order to allow humane treatment while the animals are waiting to be adopted.

“These are animals that have either been abandoned, found in Vidalia, or surrender by their owners. And our objective is to try and find homes for all of them. And until that happens though, we want to make sure that they are treated and cared for as humanely as possible, and having the space for them is key to that," she said.

Although the new pens have been a great addition to the shelter, 114 stray dogs still remain, and are in need of a home.
