More Work for the Vermilion County Animal Shelter

Updated: Thursday, February 20 2014, 10:39 AM CST

Vermilion County Animal Shelter officials say since the county has taken over animal control services in the city of Danville, animal control employees for the county have already seen a thirty percent increase in workload.

The county has been working in the city for about two weeks now and shelter officials report a significant increase in the number of calls they receive.

Currently there are two animal control employees for the county but the shelter director is looking to hire two more people to keep up with demand.

Director Paige Brown says, "As the number of animals come in, that has put a real workload on out kennel staff so we are probably going to hire one additional kennel staff and also a kennel supervisor who would be in charge of the staff, in charge of medications, scheduling, stuff like that."

She also asks the public to be patient as the shelter transitions.

Animal control duties include taking care of violent and loose animals.

The shelter will also do welfare checks if animals are in immediate danger.

Again, if you live in the city of danville and have an issue you are asked to call the Vermilion County shelter during regular business hours.
