TELL CITY – The Perry County Animal Shelter Board has announced it will cease operations effective Nov. 30.

In a letter dated Set. 3 and sent to the Board of County Commissioners, the shelter members – which include Jeff Schneider, Dale Sprinkle, Steve Lutgring and Bret Lutgring – said they would dissolve the group’s 501(C))(3) nonprofit designation and turn all holdings over to the commissioners. That includes the shelter facility in Cannelton and an estimated $100,000 in operating funds.
