City, organization working toward no kill



Jackson said she is glad Commerce has been working with them to help the animals at the shelter.

“The fact that the city of Commerce is working to increase the adoption rate is not only a good reflection of Hunt County and Commerce, but also word is getting out that Commerce is doing the right thing,” she said. 

Commerce City Manager Marc Clayton echoed Jackson’s sentiments, and added the partnership has been running smoothly.

“I consider this overall to be working,” he said. “Things are going well.”

Clayton said the organization stepped up big time and manned the shelter with volunteers when the current worker had to go out of town.

“They stepped up and volunteered,” he said. 

Clayton said he would like to see a continued partnership between the city and NKHC. 

“I want us to continue working with each other,” he said. “We all share the same goal.”
