"We have a wonderful rapport. She's very knowledgeable in both the humane and the control aspect." Williams and Sabatoni will head up their respective divisions in the new building. "The county offices will handle animal control and will be in one wing of the building," Williams said. "We'll be in the other wing running the adoptions, but we'll definitely have shared opportunities. Being in the same facilities will certainly centralize services. We'll be able to reach out to the community in terms of education and services and, hopefully, also impact legislation. "In all these things, we'll be able to have a partnership where we're all right there under the same roof. We can really interact to do what's best for the animals and best for the community in a more efficient way." Sabatoni agreed. "I can hardly wait," she said.
