Nonprofit Wishbone to take over Allegan County Animal Shelter (Holland, MI)

A plan to pass operations of the Allegan County Animal Shelter from the county to a nonprofit group is almost complete. The county board is scheduled to vote on a proposed contract at its Thursday meeting.

The move is driven by budget concerns and service issues, said county Administrator Rob Sarro.

“The county can only afford to run the shelter at a minimum service level. However, a private group has more resources to recruit volunteers and generate donations,” Sarro said.
