RIBBON CUT ON NEW YUCCA VALLEY ANIMAL SHELTER YESTERDAY

The Town of Yucca Valley held a ribbon cutting yesterday for its new animal shelter. The new shelter consists of three buildings and several exercise yards for the dogs. It has 59 dog runs and 36 cat cages, plus a separate room with cages for feral cats, and a room for other small animals and exotic pets.

Present at the ribbon cutting for the new Yucca Valley Animal Shelter on Monday, December 16, were Brian Cronin, Chief of San Bernardino County Animal Care and Control; Donna Munoz, field representative for Third District County Supervisor James Ramos; Yucca Valley Council Member Dawn Rowe; Mayor Robert Lombardo; Council Member Bob Leone; and Mayor Pro Tem George Huntington.

But besides the new upgraded facilities, what the shelter staff is probably the most excited about is the laundry room with a washer and two dryers, and an expanded and updated food prep area with a three-bowl sink and a sanitizer for the animals’ food bowls. The animal shelter, which is a joint project with the county of San Bernardino, was five years in the making, and cost nearly $4 million, with the Town’s contribution just under $1 million. The shelter officially opens for business today (Tuesday, December 17), and is located just south of the old shelter, at 4755 Malin Way. Shelter hours are noon to 5, Tuesday through Saturday. The shelter has reduced the adoption fees for all cats 6 months and older, and black kittens, to $20 through Saturday, December 21. All cats will be spayed or neutered and vaccinated. A heavy-duty cardboard cat carrier will be provided to transport your new cat home.
