BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The Kern County Animal Services facility is officially open after a big move just a few days ago.
Close to three hundred dogs and cats were recently relocated to its new facility on Fruitvale Avenue. More space means the ability to provide better services for people and the animals that call the shelter their temporary home.
The shelter's new facility is laid out differently.
There is an area for medical services and a special, quiet place for people looking to adopt.
"We are excited to be able to move to this new facility. We offer new programs, enhance programs that are already existing. Our staff is excited. We have a lot of great things in store for us," said Shyanne Schull, interim director of Animal Services.
Leaders with the Animal Services say they are hosting a blanket drive. Anyone willing to donate a blanket or newspapers can do so at their new facility in Northwest Bakersfield.
