Volunteer Group Discusses Obion County Animal Shelter

A group of Union City voluneers met with Tennessee animal rights activists this week to discuss the establishment of a new animal shelter to serve Obion County. The group, which currently has no formal name or officers, is working closely with Native Way Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals on designs for a shelter in the Troy area.
