Havelock Animal Shelter re-opening delayed

Posted: Updated:

A local animal shelter that was supposed to re-open on Monday is still closed because of construction delays.

The Havelock Animal Shelter has been closed for renovations since July 1.

It was scheduled to re-open on July 15, but because of all the recent rain, crews haven't been able to build a solid foundation for the bricks, said Havelock city spokesperson Diane Miller.

The city is building three new kennels and extra storage space at the shelter for almost $68,000, she said.

The shelter scheduled to re-open around July 29, two weeks from Monday.

"The dogs and the cats will not be right next to each other. There'll be a little more separation space which helps both sets of animals be able to deal with being in a strange place better," said Miller.

All the animals are being held an animal shelter in Craven County during the renovations.
