Carteret County Animal Shelter has failed their state inspection and now they’re calling on volunteers to help make repairs. Rusted fencing, corroded kennel runs, and deteriorated floors are just a few of the problems the shelter must fix by June 30th to get their license reinstated. Shelter Lead Rachel Jackson hopes that the community will help make repairs during a volunteer effort on Saturday, May 18th.
“It’ll take all the community coming together and getting all new fencing in there and trying to put new concrete back where it’s busted and resealing the whole floor and hopefully within that day we’ll get it all squared away.”
Jackson says that prospective volunteers can sign up beforehand at the shelter or simply stop by on Saturday morning.
