Big Spring moves to no-kill shelter

BIG SPRING, TX (KWES) - The city of Big Spring is moving toward having a no-kill animal shelter.

City council members unanimously approved a resolution that gives the city a goal of establishing a no-kill shelter by 2017.

Local volunteers have long expressed interest in a no-kill shelter to city leaders.

Mayor Larry McLellan says he understands there will be some challenges, but with the help from the community, volunteers, and pet owners, he believes it could become a reality.

City manager Todd Darden says this should not affect the way the city operates as far as costs, but that depends on help from the public and volunteers.
