On Tuesday, December 18, 2018, the Pitt County Animal Shelter, located at 4550 County Home Road in Greenville, will be closed to the public for the entire day. This closure will be to allow for improvements of the electric utilities connected to the Shelter; and is part of the ongoing Shelter Renovation and Expansion project which began in April of this year. In addition to the power outage, phone services and other operations will be impacted by the construction as well. To accommodate this, all Animal Services related calls of an EMERGENCY nature, should be directed to the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office at 252-830-4141.
The overall project, expected to be completed sometime in the summer of 2019, encompasses three separate phases, and will add 54 cat cages and 17 dog kennels to the existing Shelter. In addition to adding an entirely new wing, with entrance and parking area, the just over $2M total cost of the project also accounts for renovation of the existing office space and kennel areas.
The Shelter will be open for adoptions and regular operations up until and after the temporary closure. For more information on adoption, or services at the Shelter, visit the Animal Services page of the Pitt County website at www.PittCountyNC.gov/PCAS.
