Should A Dog Kennel Be Allowed In A Neighborhood?
City Council is debating whether a dog rescue kennel should be allowed in Woburn.
The City Council is debating whether a dog rescue kennel facility should be given a special permit.
The council heard from Great Dog Rescue of New England at its last meeting, according to the Woburn Daily Times. During the meeting, two aldermen reportedly questioned whether the facility should be allowed.
The Great Dog kennel would be located at 34 Holton St. and serve as a facilty to house up to 36 dogs between Thursdays and Saturdays as the pups await adoption.
The owner of the building reportedly told aldermen that the kennel would be "sound-proofed" to avoid disruptions from barking.
The City Council Special Permits subcommittee will meet to further discuss the question.
What do you think? Should the city allow this non-profit organization to open a kennel on Holton Street?
