Waynesville proposes joint animal shelter with Saint Robert for dogs
Waynesville proposes joint animal shelter with Saint Robert for dogs

The Waynesville Animal Shelter would become a joint facility for Waynesville and St. Robert if the cities approve a new proposal by Waynesville.
WAYNESVILLE, Mo. (Feb. 6, 2010) — Members of the Waynesville Police and Emergency Services Committee approved a joint intergovernmental agreement Thursday afternoon that, if also approved by the Saint Robert City Council, could lead to a joint animal shelter that would have space for more than twice the number of dogs as the current facility.

Located in the terminal building for what was once the Waynesville Municipal Airport at the top of the Waynesville Hill on Ousley Road behind the stations for the Pulaski County Ambulance District and Waynesville Rural Fire Protection District, the Waynesville animal shelter currently has seven dog runs that typically can hold two dogs per run, or sometimes a mother dog and her puppies. The proposed intergovernmental agreement between the two cities would add an additional 10 runs.

“The basic thing is the city of St. Robert will add to our existing facility for their animals if the agreement is approved by both councils for 20 years,” said Councilman Ed Conley, who chairs the Waynesville Police and Emergency Services Committee.

“The facility remains the property of the city of Waynesville; the cost will be divided evenly between the two cities,” Conley said.

Staffed mostly by volunteers with the assistance of an animal control officer, the current Waynesville animal shelter is under the authority of the Waynesville Police Department.
