PECOS - A controversial topic in Pecos about to be put to rest.
According to the Mayor, the new Pecos Animal Shelter is almost finished.
The city broke ground back in October. The current facility isn't up to state standards, prompting concerned neighbors to take action.
The council voted and by February a 4,500 square foot shelter will be up and operating.
The new Shelter behind the Criminal Justice Center will house about 50 animals at a time.
