Big Spring Opens Larger Animal Shelter

BIG SPRING - Big Spring Animal Control is hoping a new animal shelter will help them get the animal overpopulation under control.

They opened the doors on their new digs Friday. Toward the end of last year the city had to raise their fees because of the high cost of materials and fuel.

Overcrowding had also become a big problem in Howard County.

Officials say the new building will hold three times as many pets as the current one.
