The Cleveland, Tenn., Animal Shelter will not accept animals from outside city limits beginning July 1 if Bradley County and Cleveland officials cannot reach an agreement by June 26.

The Cleveland City Council mustered only 3 out of 7 votes in support of a proposal from the county that would reduce its portion of the animal control budget by eliminating animal pickup services outside of city limits.

Ending the agreement would come as a blow to Cleveland’s efforts to become a “no-kill” community, city Mayor Tom Rowland said.
