Kern County Board of Supervisors delivers letter to Bakersfield mayor regarding animal control

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Kern County Board of Supervisors agreed Tuesday to draft a letter to the City of Bakersfield asking for cooperation with animal control drop offs.

The letter was delivered Wednesday, describing the new Kern County Animals Services policy that they will only accept animals from residents who live outside the City of Bakersfield.

That policy comes after Bakersfield Animal Control created a policy of accepting animal drop offs only from people who live in city limits.
