The PAW Animal shelter in Fort Madison received some assistance from an unexpected source.
The McDonough County Animal Shelter is finding more homes for more pets.
Just over a year ago, the county had a complete turnover of its animal control officers.
Linda Jani chairs ths county committee that oversees the shelter's operation.
She says, “We're very happy with that trend because we like to see the animals going to good homes. Nobody likes to euthanize (animals) but occassionally it's necessary.
