February 6-- The committee named to examine operations of the Lyons Animal Shelter after last month's mass killing of dogs held its second meeting in five days Monday night.
According to Therisa Ingley of the Sweet Onion Animal Protection Society, the committee is moving toward a consensus that something needs to be done soon to increase the size of the Lyons shelter and that more staff is needed to keep care of the animals.
It also is investigating compliance with state regulations requiring impounded animals be kept 30 days before euthunasia is performed.
There are currently 21 dogs in the Lyons shelter hoping for adoption.
The committee plans to give its report at the March meeting of the Lyons city council and has another committee meeting set for Tuesday, February 15.
