HELMETTA, N.J. (AP) - The New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has been given receivership of a central New Jersey animal shelter that has been quarantined.

The borough council voted for the plan for the Helmetta Regional Animal Shelter on Sunday.

Mayor Nancy Martin tells the Home News Tribune (https://mycj.co/1AGlfdY ) the council will review the decision in 30 days.

The shelter was placed under quarantine earlier this month following an inspection that found six areas of concern, including disease control. No animals were allowed in or out.

Under receivership, the town will continue to be responsible for all management costs.
