After being closed for some time, the Mathis Animal Shelter is on it's way to being re-opened!
Cheryl Martinez with PAAC told 3 News, "the police department is dedicated to making a difference for the animals and hopefully within the next 90 days, they will have a functional shelter and be able to get some animals."
They also are in the process of dis-mantling the gas chamber, which was once used to euthanize the animals when the shelter was open. We're told they are always looking for volunteers, especially in the Mathis area.
