An animal shelter's finances are slated for review amid operation concerns.

Nampa Mayor Bob Henry announced Friday that the city plans to coordinate the audit and share costs with Caldwell officials.

He said in a statement that he also plans to appoint a city animal control officer to the shelter's board of directors.

West Valley Humane Society interim executive director Susan Woodward said the city is welcome to conduct an audit.

Canyon County and the cities of Nampa and Caldwell have contracts with the shelter.

The Idaho Press-Tribune reported months-long delays in the shelter invoicing Nampa and the county.

Some who have expressed concerns about the shelter are members of a group that formed after a dog was euthanized despite her owner's search for her.
