  • Foster families needed for dogs

    Construction of new kennels at the county’s animal shelter has members of the Anderson Humane Society scrambling to find temporary homes for dogs.
    During construction, which was funded by a $55,000 grant from the state’s Department of Agriculture, only 10 dogs can be housed at the animal shelter. As of Monday afternoon, those spaces were taken.
    “If anyone out there could foster a dog for a couple of weeks, it would ease overcrowding and the resulting euthanasia due to lack of space,” Humane Society volunteer Sandy Warner said in an e-mail.
