The Anderson County Animal Shelter has new hours, a press release said. The Shelter, located at 1480 Blockhouse Valley Road in South Clinton, is now open to the public six days a week.
The new public hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.
“Since the small shelter first opened in 2016, due to staffing restrictions, the facility was only open to the public for limited hours on Wednesdays,” the press release said.
“We are appreciative of County Commission’s support of additional staff for our Solid Waste Department so that we can open our recycling center six days a week,” Anderson County Mayor Terry Frank said in the press release. “As the shelter and recycling center are co-located on the same property, we are now able to also open the shelter six days a week. We are very excited about more opportunities to serve the public.”
The press release said the shelter has 12 runs for dogs and a separate house for cats. For more information, call the Anderson County Animal Shelter at (865) 441-2068, or visit online at http://andersonanimals.org.
