|Hours established at animal shelter|
Winnsboro Director of Animal Affairs Russell Grant will now be on hand at the city animal shelter on weekdays from noon to 1 p.m. to help people who are trying to locate their lost pets or wanting to adopt new ones, according to city officials.
The move to have Grant remain the shelter one hour during weekdays is part of a push by the city to help with problem concerning the animal population.

The case ended with charges being dropped by a grand jury in September.
