SPAS reopens as landslide repairs continue

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Southern Pines Animal Shelter has reopened.

This comes just a couple of weeks after it closed so work could be done to fix a landslide behind one of the facility's main buildings.

That work continues, with donated equipment, materials and labor from a local contractor.

Work has included the construction of an access road, which has made reaching the landslide area easier.

Several weeks ago, heavy rains caused a part of the shelter property to break away, taking with it part of a dog-walking trail.

The slide came very close to damaging the foundation of a building which houses dog runs and treatment rooms.
