Rezoning Request for No-Kill Pet Shelter in Chatham Denied

Pittsylvania Co.,VA - The Animal Welfare League of Pittsylvania County has been raising money to purchase land for a no-kill shelter in Chatham, but on Tuesday night they hit a huge obstacle.

The Pittsylvania County Board of Supervisors denied their request to rezone the property.

The board says residents had major concerns about the noise, smell and possible danger the shelter could cause.

The League said they are moving on, and will look for another piece of land to purchase in the county.
