Pender shelter must move dogs for renovation


BURGAW, NC (WWAY) — Last month many of you answered the call when we reported that the Pender County Animal Shelter needed dog houses to protect animals from the elements. Now the shelter needs help again.

After failing a state inspection, the shelter must renovate its septic system. As a result at least 60 dogs need to be relocated by the end of the month.
