MARSHALL COUNTY, W.VA. (WTRF) – The Marshall County Animal Shelter is going to be closed for the next few weeks due to construction.
Shelter officials tell us this should last for about two to three weeks. During this time, the Animal Shelter will not be accepting new animals or adopting any animals, except on an emergency basis.
Animals housed at the shelter will be moved to another location while new floors are put in.
“For sanitation purposes, this is going to be extremely beneficial,” said Denise Nally, Executive Director of the Marshall County Animal Shelter. “With spraying and keeping contamination factors down, parvovirus, feline viruses, this is going to help tremendously. We’re expecting a grand re-opening sometime in November so we’re really excited about that.”
Nally says they are still processing applications that have been submitted before the closure. She adds that their phone time will be limited for the time being but that you can stop by the shelter in the event of an emergency situation.
Any questions regarding the construction and temporary closing can be directed to the shelter at 304-845-9770.
