ZANESVILLE, Ohio– The Animal Shelter Society’s Executive Director Jody Murray met with the Zanesville Noon Rotary Club Tuesday.

Murray spoke with noon rotarians about the history of the shelter, how the shelter is funded, and things the shelter does and does not do.

“We don’t go out and pick up animals,” Murray said. “We are not part of any enforcement agency. We don’t investigate abuse and neglect. There’s different entities in the community that do that. The dog warden, they take care of enforcement of vicious dogs, dogs running loose, things like that. The humane society, they’re more involved in investigation of abuse and neglect of all animals in particular farm animals. We’re a shelter where homeless animals come and our primary function is adoption.”

Murray also spoke to the rotarians about how they can get involved with the shelter.

“Volunteer and support kind of opportunities. We certainly hope a lot of them are interested in. Come out and help us at the shelter,” Murray said.
