CLEVELAND COUNTY, N.C. - There are new developments in the fight over a gas chamber at a local animal shelter.
Cleveland County commissioners have decided to get rid of the chamber.
Channel 9’s news partner, The Shelby Star, reports the target date is April 30.
Commissioners also decided to extend the shelter's hours in an effort to allow more people the time to come in and adopt a pet.
The shelter will also offer access to a low-cost spay and neuter clinic.
