Ground will break later this month on Delaware County’s new animal control facility once soil testing is complete.
The shelter will be built in a metal basin on a site formerly occupied by a sewage treatment plant.
Oct. 27 is the day, just two months before the Delaware County SPCA ends its animal control contract with the county. The Delco Times reports a Plan B to partner with Delaware animal shelters is a no-go, as transporting unvaccinated animals across state lines is illegal. Other area animal shelters are being sought in the meantime until the new facility is ready.
