(BROWNSTOWN) - The woman pushing for a dog shelter to help the county deal with stray and abandoned dogs now has a way of raising private donations to pay for its $200,000 cost.

The Seymour Tribune reports that Debbie Hackman has been spearheading the drive to have the shelter built on county-owned property behind the jail, just east of Brownstown.

The shelter, which would be operated in part by inmates, would replace a privately operated shelter the county uses to house strays collected by its animal control officer.

Hackman received a variance for the shelter from the county board of zoning appeals provided she can obtain private funds to build it and could obtain a building permit within two years.
