Animal shelter ribbon cut

GAUTIER, Miss. -- The first phase of the new Jackson County Animal Shelter project is complete and was marked with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday. The 5,000-square foot adoption and administration building cost $1.1 million and took over a year to build. The new facility features a lobby which can house 30 smaller animals, two visitation rooms, a breakroom, three offices and 14 dual-sided kennels for larger dogs. The new building began housing animals in December. Phase two of the project will result in a 7,500-square foot kennel. Design and engineering of that facility is expected to begin this year.
