Williamson County officials have hired a new director and a new supervisor to run the struggling regional animal shelter, County Judge Dan A. Gattis said Monday.

Ethel Spence, previously an animal control supervisor for the City of Giddings, will oversee kennel workers and starts work Friday. County officials would not release the name or background of the new director Monday.

“Both ladies have a lot of experience in animal shelters,” Gattis said. “I think they’re going to make a good team.”
