Animal Shelter Update/Follow our Paws...
Wilson County's New Animal Shelter Update:
Follow our Paws as Wilson County builds a new animal shelter. We will post updates here.
We continue final plans for construction of a new animal shelter. Sheriff Woodard, Chief Samuel and Captain O'Neal continue to be our point of contact. The Sheriff’s Office submitted our original proposed plans to the Department of Agriculture, Veterinary Division for feedback and suggestion on best practices. This division inspects our shelter along with others throughout the state and is an excellent source of information.
We appreciate their feedback and were able to share data with our local contractor/engineer to incorporate into the existing plans in August. Our contractors shared the revisions in September along with the additional questions and comments for staff. The Sheriff’s Office reviewed again, and work is currently being done on full design plans. The preliminary plans are on the link below with slight modifications from the original to incorporate the feedback from the DOA. The shelter's new location will be NC 42 East near Solid Waste Services and just minutes from the City of Wilson Operations Center and Wilson Community College and a short exit off of 301 highway.
