KING GEORGE -- The Board of Supervisors decided to delay making a decision on private use of the former county animal shelter until late summer.
St. Seton’s Orphaned Animals Executive Director Carl Allard asked the board to consider allowing the organization to lease the vacated building at 11220 Henry Griffin Rd. for use as low cost spay/neuter clinic at the April 5 meeting.
But a study to transform the property into a recreation area is already slated.
Board chair Joe Grzeika said it would be unfair to make a commitment to anyone at this time since the study may show that maintaining the building is not a feasible option.
A complete account of the discussion at the meeting will appear in the April 13 edition of the Journal.

BOS to consider use of vacated county Animal Shelter
In 2009 more than 240K companion animals passed through county shelters throughout the commonwealth. And nearly 95,000 or 40 percent never made it out alive.
But as our local area deals with the impact of pet overpopulation, St. Seton’s Orphaned Animals, in conjunction with the Rappahannock Area Agency on Aging (RAAA), is offering a solution.
According to founder Jeanette Allard, St. Seton’s is teaming up with the RAAA to bring a low cost spay/neuter clinic to King George.
