BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Kern County Animal Services announced in a Facebook post that they will try to reopen on June 8 at their Bakersfield Shelter.

They noted that it will not be "business as usual." The post says, "All visitors to the shelter will be required to wear a mask and traffic in the shelter will be limited and escorted at a safe distance. For the time being, we will not be accepting Owner Surrendered pets of any kind or healthy stray cats. Intakes of stray dogs as well as adoptions will be done on an appointment basis. We will continue to try to find fosters for animals that come into the shelter."

They ask that you keep an eye on their social medias for any updates to come.
