Carbon government builds protective structures for canines at animal shelter
Carbon government continues to improve the overflow area at the animal shelter on Utah Highway 10. In the past, officials were hesitant to keep dogs at the shelter due to the lack of structures to protect the animals from the elements. But recently, animal control director Patty Pierce traveled to Kane County and viewed unique shelters at the Best Friends sanctuary. Since then, the county has built similar shelters in the outside enclosure. The structures shade the dogs during the warm weather and can be closed off on the bottom so the animals will have a comfortable place to sleep during the cold weather.
