In other business, the board also discussed the volunteer program for the shelter, Friends of the Animals of Norman.
FAN had its first meeting last month to brainstorm ideas about setting up a volunteer program for the understaffed shelter.
Bowman said around 45 to 55 people attended and the response was great. They are now looking for someone to organize their efforts and the group to more effectively serve the shelter.
One issue they have run into so far is volunteers having Monday through Friday jobs during business hours and wanting to volunteer on weekends, but the shelter is not open weekends, he said.
Even so, the shelter intends to use any help they can receive, and volunteers will go through orientation to help with the upcoming clinic the shelter is hosting Feb. 9 for vaccinations and micro-chipping, Bowman said.
The clinic will be from noon to 4 p.m. at the shelter. Vaccines will be available as well as micro-chipping and city pet licenses.
