Tom Zimmerman IV, president of the Mahoning Valley Lions Club, has called a meeting for 6:30 p.m. Thursday to discuss the potential future of the Carbon County K-9 program.
It will be held at the Lehighton American Legion Post.
Zimmerman said, "This event is to discuss what we can do and how we can help with the possible closing of the Carbon County Animal Shelter. We will need resources, volunteers, ideas, plans, and help whatever is decided. We need to meet as a group to discuss options for the welfare of Carbon County animals. We need this shelter open."
