The new animal shelter director was announced during the Giles County Commission meeting.

Morgan Sutton came to Giles County from Obion County, where she held a similar position.

Deputy Sheriff Randy Boaz will be the county animal control officer working with Sutton at the new shelter.

The animal shelter is planned to open Monday, July 1, which is a month later than scheduled.

Sutton will also work with volunteers and assist developing policies for the shelter.
