SCOTTSBORO, AL (WAFF) -

The City of Scottsboro is trying to become the first city-owned no-kill animal shelter in the state.

Last week, dozens of puppies were brought to the Scottsboro Animal Shelter. Like many shelters, if the animals cannot be adopted quickly they face being put down.

So far, only six puppies have been adopted.

But the City of Scottsboro is looking at making their shelter a no kill shelter and focusing on efforts to get them adopted.

Scottsboro Mayor Melton Potter said he plans to ask the council to hire a full time office manager and the county to provide a part time employee so they could work after hours and weekends to actively get the animals adopted.

"They can actively pursue the adoption of the animals that we take in whether it's on the internet or going to different businesses in town and setting up or being part of that network to know when these animals, people who would want to adopt the animals," said Mayor Potter.

Mayor Potter said he hopes to have the job description for the full time position available for discussion at the councils next work session set for May 6th.
