Lauderdale County's Animal Control department will now house local Humane Society animals and assist in getting them spayed, neutered and adopted.
The Lauderdale County Board of Supervisors approved the resolution for joint use of the county's animal control facility on Tuesday.
Dewayne Sosebee, Lauderdale County animal control director, said the move will be a big change for both the animal control department and the Humane Society.
Sosebee said the Humane Society will have room to house up to 25 dogs and five cats in one of animal control's two buildings. He also said part of the agreement involves Humane Society volunteers helping clean the animal control property and helping find homes for the animals.
Sosebee said animal control, 501 Cooper Ave., will keep its current hours for adoption, from 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
In other business the board:
Approved a resolution authorizing a $500-a-month lease agreement with James Lloyd to rent a home at the Meridian/Lauderdale County I-20/59 Industrial Park.
Approved a request to advertise for an assistant director of the Lauderdale County Agri-Center.
Recessed Tuesday's meeting until 3 p.m. July 15 to equalize the 2004 real and personal property tax rolls.
