Vicky Hunt, a director with the Pet Adoption and Welfare Society. and Arias are asking local municipalities to appoint representatives from their governing bodies to sit on a committee that will conduct a study on replacing the intake facility.
Hunt told the Elon Board of Aldermen on Tuesday night that the project would cost an estimated $4.9 million. She said the addition would not be a "Taj Mahal," but a no-frills, safe and comfortable place for the animals, the shelter's employees, who would be under one roof, and the people who want to adopt pets.
The shelter takes in about 5,000 dogs and cats each year, a number that has gone down since 2010, when the shelter opened a low-cost spay and neuter center, Hunt said. Hunt and her husband, Sam Hunt, and Arias plan to appear before the Alamance County Board of Commissioners on Monday.
