Town of Cairo opens animal control facility

Jul 15, 2014 7:44 am
Audrey Matott is reporting in The Daily Mail the new Cairo animal control facility is now open. Town Highway Superintendent Robert Hempstead was responsible for the facility's development, which is housed in a former garage at the town's sewer plant. Captured dogs will be placed there while awaiting redemption by their owners. The facility includes four, 4-foot by 10-foot kennels. The interior work has been completed, and Hempstead is now advocating for a "phase two," which would include plans to create a covered outdoor run. Phase two could begin in the fall with Town Board approval. In a related piece of business the Town Board took steps last week toward implementing a dog control law. A public hearing on the law will be held Aug. 4 at Cairo Town Hall. Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
