Animal Shelter Needs A Home

Posted by wlpo on April 1, 2010

Where do you quickly place about 80 cats and dogs?  It’s a question they’re asking at Just Animals Shelter in Seneca.

The shelter has been given a 30 day notice by their landlord to move out so a new tenant can move in.  A Plus Storage co-owner Justin Terry says they needed to find a renter.  The storage company issued a statement Tuesday saying they offered the animal shelter a six-month lease following the end of seven year lease in January.  The new lease would have raised monthly rent by 150 dollars.  The shelter had been paying one thousand dollars a month since it was built for them seven years ago.  The storage company says shelter officials turned down the lease and said they were moving to Morris.

Shelter officials say they’ve always paid their rent complete and on time.  In their own statement, they say have no idea where they will go or what will happen to the animals they have.  They say they can’t take new animals while they look to relocate.
