Anderson animal shelter could be run by nonprofit

Could Anderson’s animal shelter soon be run by a non-profit organization?  That’s the proposal facing scrutiny at tonight’s Anderson City Council meeting.  According to the council’s agenda, Animal Protection League, Inc. wants to negotiate a plan to run the Anderson Animal Care and Control.  As a nonprofit organization, the League could use its 501(c) 3 status to collect donations for the shelter.  Care and Control director Maleah Stringer tells the Herald Bulletin that the agreement has been discussed for three years.   Stringer says since the beginning of the year, the shelter has taken in dozens and dozens of animals in what is normally their slow season.  Care and Control is expected to receive $198,000 in city funding.  Tonight’s meeting begins at 7 P-M.
