HOUMA, Louisiana — Work will soon begin on the new Terrebonne Parish Animal Shelter following final budget approval by the parish council.
The Courier reports (http://bit.ly/1FEXGD6) once construction crews meet with the parish administration, a start date will be set on the project that is expected to take just under one year to complete.
Shelter Manager Valerie Robinson thanked the council and Terrebonne residents Wednesday for making the new shelter possible.
The new shelter will allow for over 50 new dog enclosures or "runs" that will allow the shelter to segregate and house dogs in less a less crowded environment. It will also add space for storage, veterinary services and staff training.
The $1 million shelter will be part of the Terrebonne Government Complex in Gray.
