The new plan will keep people in the school’s gymnasium and their pets can come along. Trained volunteers and others with animal experience would staff the pet shelter.
O’Brien is now looking for people who are trained in animal care or have experience to sign up to be pet shelter volunteers.
He credited executive assistant Suzanne Roy for her hard work on the idea.
“She did a lot of research,” he said.
The pet shelter plan will go before Town Council for final approval.
