Shelter planning changes, grant for adoption efforts
BATON ROUGE- The newest director of the animal shelter promises changes are being made at the controversial facility.
"We've made a lot of headway with our system," Beth Brewster said.
Brewster has been leading the shelter for about six weeks.
One new effort is a dog rescue project. The shelter will get money for each dog that is adopted and does not return to the shelter.
"It gives us the resources to get dogs adopted," Brewster said.
The project is funded through the Carroll Petrie Foundation Dog Rescue Project.
