In a unanimous vote, the Page County Board of Supervisors chose to put a new animal shelter near the Community Center in Stanley.

That's a change from an earlier vote that would have moved the shelter to the grounds of the Page County Technical Center. Board members say the community center is simply a better fit.

"We've made a commitment tonight to fund what we think will be a very nice shelter at a very central location in the county," says District 3 Supervisor Charles Ballard.

Construction of the $400,000 facility is scheduled to begin in April. Part of the cost will be paid with a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
