UPDATED: Sheriff relinquishes control of the animal shelter

-A A +A
By Travis Jenkins

For many years, whoever held the office of Chester County sheriff had control of the Chester County Animal Shelter. That changed as of July 1.

On Monday, Chester County Supervisor Shane Stuart announced that Sheriff Alex Underwood had willingly relinquished control of the shelter, which will now fall back under the purview of Chester County. The move came after a group of animal welfare advocates filed suit in March on the grounds that state law and local ordinances do not expressly allow a sheriff to control or operate an animal shelter.
