As The Atlanta Journal-Constitution previously reported, county commissioners agreed last month to spend $270,000 to find the next best site to build a new shelter. They estimate they'll spend $25 million on the project.
Robb Pitts, the chairman of the Fulton County commission, at the time of the vote described the current shelter as looking “like a third- or fourth-world facility.”

There are eight dogs to a kennel and no space designated for cats because the shelter, built in 1978, wasn't designed for animals to leave alive, LifeLine CEO Rebecca Guinn previously told the AJC.
In April, the Fulton shelter’s save rate was 90 percent.
LifeLine also offers short-term and long-term foster opportunities for people looking to take in pets.
The free adoptions include spaying/neutering, microchipping and vaccinations, which LifeLine said is a $300 value.
Fulton is holding its first community meeting to hear suggestions from the public about the new shelter on June 20 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Wolf Creek Library, 3100 Enon Road.
The county said on its website that attendees can expect to hear updates from Fulton leaders, LifeLine and the firms conducting the feasibility study for the new animal shelter.
