BAKERSFIELD - Kern County Animal Services is joining thousands of shelters across the country in pledging to make this a no kill nation for JUST ONE DAY Wednesday.

The Kern County Animal Services Bakersfield Shelter is at 3951 Fruitvale Avenue. Lake Isabella and Mojave Shelters also participating in the $11 reduced adoption fees, but their hours are regular hours.
