Screven County animal lovers and animals alike will celebrate the opening of the new Screven County Animal Shelter when it officially opens Wednesday preceded by an open house from 10 a.m. to noon. The existing shelter was built at least 30 years ago, said Thomas Lariscy, animal control officer and director of the shelter for the past 10 years. The new shelter, located right next door to the old one on Rocky Ford Road, has 52 kennels, said Lariscy, a vast improvement from the 18 kennels the old shelter used to house the 1,200-1,500 animals that come through the shelter during an average year.
