It’s been a dreaded fact of life that the Lincoln County Animal Shelter would some day close down due to serious aging of the shelter building. That day has come.
Sheriff’s deputies report that mold levels throughout the Animal Shelter have made the building unfit for animal or human use. Shelter staff are working on a fix – with a slim number of options.
In the meantime, Animal Shelter workers have found temporary quarters for some of the suddenly homeless animals at other shelter facilities. But officials say they’re still able to provide some shelter services out of a large emergency trailer parked in front of the shelter, across from the fairgrounds.
If you and/or your family would like to help the shelter in its hour of need just call Laura Braxling – she’s the Director of the Shelter. Laura can be reached at 541-265-0725. Or you can email her at: LBraxling@co.lincoln.or.us
