The Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter is closing to the public for up to six weeks as they renovate their facilities.
As of Wednesday, March 20, the shelter is not accepting animals from the public, but will continue to accept them from animal control agencies. While the renovations are going on, there will be staff members available to answer phone calls and help owners who are looking for their lost animals.
The group Pilot and Paws is taking the animals currently in the shelter to prearranged rescue organizations to be adopted, the shelter posted on their Facebook page.
The shelter says the renovations will start April 1 and are expected to last from four to six weeks. The organization says they will send out a notice when animals can once again be accepted from the public.
