Commissioners also approved a plan to house stray animals while the county builds its new shelter.
The Parkway Animal Hospital in Callaway will house strays until June. That's when the new facility should be completed.
Lynn Haven has been handling those duties for the last three years. But the county's contract with Lynn Haven expires at the end of January, and the city does not want to continue the deal.
Construction on the county's new shelter should begin in February.
