State and local officials met recently in Ludowici to discuss funding options for a proposed animal rescue shelter in Long County.
State officials, who met with Sheriff Craig Nobles and commission Chairman Dwight Gordon, included Department of Corrections Board members Bob Plemons and Wayne Dasher, and State Rep. Jeff Jones, R-Brunswick, who represents the 167th District.
Long County Chief Code Enforcement Officer John Bradley said the proposed shelter would be near the county’s animal control office. He said the land was given to the county by the industrial authority. Bradley said the animal control office holds 15 dogs and the shelter would hold up to 100 animals.
Bradley said the approximately 4,300 square foot building would be built using inmate labor.
