Merger of Trumbull kennel, animal welfare league under negotiation
Seven months after the Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County announced it would take over the housing of dogs from the Trumbull County Dog Kennel, the move is still in the negotiations stage.
The plan the Animal Welfare League laid out in May was that the county dog kennel’s staff would work out of an office in the Animal Welfare League’s future home in the former indoor and outdoor softball facility called the Thunderplex.
The Animal Welfare League purchased the building on state Route 193 across from Squaw Creek Country Club in Vienna Township in March.
At a budget hearing this month, Gwen Logan, executive dog warden for the county, asked the county commissioners to consider spending $4,000 to provide a fenced area for dogs to exercise at the county dog kennel’s existing facility on Anderson Avenue Northeast in Howland Township.
An exercise area on available space next to the dog kennel would give certain dogs that are especially active a fighting chance of being adopted, Logan said.
Without adequate exercise, some dogs appear too hyperactive when prospective owners come to view them, Logan said.
