LIVINSTON- Jaden House and the rest of these girl scouts picked up some tools and got to work.

"A dog got dropped off at our house.. So we thought why not help the animal shelter," says House.

The tropp is helping by building a shade at the Livingston Animal Shelter to make sure the dogs here can stretch their legs and get fresh air. Even on a hot summer's day.

"They don't really get to play that much. They don't really exercise," says Angel Robertson.

Some of those animals found new homes this morning. Brenton C. adopted a pet for his family.

"We actually have about a half acre fenced in, a lot of room to run lots of shade," says Brenton.

The event is in the midst of controversy for the shelter, as some are calling for a parish wide facility.

Right now the shelter can only pick up animals within the town limits of Livingston.

While parish leaders hash it out, workers tell news two they're concentrating on the animals they have.

"We deal with the shelter here and taking care of the dogs. Doing what we have to do for the animals here at the shelter," says Debbie DePhillips.

Parish leaders are in discussing the possibility of opening a parish wide shelter.
