City Council Discusses Animal Shelter Issues

Published on January 03, 2018 by Larry Crippen

For quite some time now, the Huntsville City Council has been exploring how to deal with controlling the animal population in the city since the previous shelter agreement with the Rita B Huff animal adoption group ended.

Councilmembers held a workshop Tuesday afternoon in an attempt to work on solving the issue. Mayor Andy Brauninger informed councilmembers that efforts on a possible solution were underway . . . .


Following the workshop, during their regular session, councilmembers discussed the possibility of approving a five-year agreement with the City of Conroe to shelter animals for $200,000 annually. They’re sheltering them at present. The agreement can be terminated with 90 days notice.

The agreement was approved with a change to the original language of the contract which struck a $1,000 per animal fee if the annual number of animals brought to them exceeded 480.

The City will continue to look into partnering with the Rita B Huff group in regard to an animal shelter for the City.
