Local animal shelter closing its doors

Posted: Updated:

Shiawassee County Animal Control's Shelter is closing at the end of the month due to county budget cuts, but the county's Humane Society stands fast in their commitment to saving and finding good homes for the remaining animals housed at the closing shelter.

The Humane Society's David Faulkner wants to clear up some rumors on social media networks. "There are going to be no animals euthanized because of the switch over. There's a couple of dogs, I understand one is pretty much adopted and we have offered to take the other dog and house him if they can't find somebody to adopt him before they close," said Faulkner.

The sign at the facility has been taken down, and a note on the door states that the shelter is no longer accepting animals due to the closing, but animals that are now being picked up by the County Animal Control Officer are being taken to the Humane Society.

"It's going very smoothly. We've been doing some remodeling in the back and are installing new kennels to house these dogs, so we're excited about the challenge to serve the community this way," Faulkner said.
