To the Editor,
No Time to Spare Animal Rescue has been open since January of 2018. In July of 2019, we received a letter from the county’s attorney stating that we need a permit. This has been a long-drawn-out battle with Warren County planning and zoning, and they went as far as having the owner charged for noncompliance.
There is a board meeting with planning and zoning coming up at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 19. You can go to No Time to Spare’s Facebook page and get a lot of information about what has happened. There is a video on there that explains very much of it.
We would appreciate the community’s support to keep us open. We have also posted about writing the commissioners and the board members a letter in support of what we do.
We are the only rescue in Warren County. We take in many dogs that are lost in our county and hold until an owner can be located. If the owner is not located, we do all the vetting and fix the dogs and put them up for adoption. We have been contacted and have helped many people in our area with vetting, food, and taking in their unwanted animals. We do make a difference in Warren County and surrounding communities.
We believe this whole thing started by a neighbor making a complaint to someone that sat on the board. We were there before there was even anything on the books as far as needing a conditional use permit. We should be grandfathered in and allowed to stay in our county. Please help.
