A report listed Spencer County’s animal shelter among those in Kentucky in need of the most improvement. Local officials are hopeful the report may spur additional funding and possibly a new building.
Report: animal shelter subpar


Many animal shelters in Kentucky are well below the state’s minimal standards, and a recent study by students at the University of Kentucky and Lincoln Memorial University ranked Spencer County’s among the worst.

The group submitted their report to the Kentucky Animal Control Advisory Board after they toured shelters across the state. It ranked Spencer County’s as number six among those needing the most help.
