Animal Shelter Funding Woes

Josephine County has an obligation to provide animal control but to what extent?

The county is looking to split animal control and adoptions. The shelter in Grants Pass is going broke because of funding cuts and officials say it could be a while before any solution is found. There is a task force that's made up of citizens and county officials who are looking at other counties to see how they work.

    A month ago, county officials declared to euthanize dogs after three days and exclude taking-in cats entirely. That has since fallen through because of public scrutiny but budget woes remain.
