Animal Shelter Works To Pass State Inspection

The Carteret County Animal Shelter is still working to comply with the state.

The shelter still needs more work to pass a state inspection.

Shelter officials say they need to replace the feral cages, metals doors and finish painting.

Though the shelter has failed twice this year, the state inspector is working with them because of all the changes they've done so far, and because there is no serious threat to the animals or the workers. Officials at the shelter are hoping to passing the inspection next time around.

The shelter anticipates passing inspection by the end of June.

    This is directed to Ralph- you don't have a clue as to what is being talked about apparently. The state ag dept. failed our shelter, one reason being rusty nasty doors that can injure the animal. The love, attention, food & clean place to lay down daily is probably the first he's had in a long time. And you are right- he wouldn't give a care about a painted door. Until he gets a nasty cut from one. I am not an employee there, I volunteer there. I AM trying to make a difference there for all the poor animals that have been neglected & tossed away like trash. We care about each & everyone of them that comes thru our doors. Replacing our doors is not a cosmetic fix because, oh gee, we just don't like the colors. They are a danger waiting to injure someone or something.

    this door needs painting- you lose, the dogs must die. What a bunch of fascist pigs we have running the place. Ask the dogs if they care there are painting delinquencies.
