Havelock Animal Shelter re-opening delayed

Posted: Updated:
HAVELOCK, N.C. -

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.

The Havelock Animal Control Shelter will be closed for renovations starting Monday.

The shelter tells 9 On Your Side they expect the contraction to take about two weeks. This renovation will be removing a wall of the shelter.

The shelter will not be able to hold any animals during the renovation period. All of the current animals will be transported to the Craven County shelter.
