Kirksville, Missouri, June 10, 2020 – Adair County Commissioners presented a check and signed a year long agreement with the local animal shelter, on behalf of Adair County, to Krista Baker Director of the Adair County Humane Society.
The mutual partnership, supported by the Commissioners, ensures that Adair County’s Vicious Animal Ordinance is enforced and that residents, pets, and livestock are protected from any dangerous dogs in the County.
The $5,000 check presented to Humane Society will be used to support costs incurred for animal pick-up, security and delivery to the animal shelter, housing, and vaccination expenses for any vicious dog reported and captured in Adair County.
