O'Brien said he is still looking for volunteers with animal experience to help staff the pet shelter when storms hit.
Roy said she has spoken to many seniors who hoped for a special place to shelter their pets.
"That's what really started all this," she said. "(In the past) some came to the shelter and left pets in the car while they came in. Others stayed at home with their animals."
Once the pet shelter draft is finally on paper, information will be available to the public on the town's website.
