Animal shelter still work in progress as county begins process of moving in animals
Last Updated: 72 days ago
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -
This is the last day for the county animal shelter on Mount Vernon.
Tomorrow they begin moving to their new location...
But it’s been just over two weeks since remodeling began and parts of the new shelter still aren’t finished.
Workers at the new county animal shelter location on Fruitvale are working frantically to get everything finished for this weekend’s move.
But even that probably won’t be enough to get it all done by October 1.
Everyone from the contractors to the county seems to understand that there is no way all of the work can be done by Tuesday but the goal is to have enough of the work done by this weekend so that the animals will have a place to stay until the work is finished
Some have said they are worried about the animals being so close to ongoing construction but animal control says they have prepared for that.
