The Santa Barbara County Public Health Department is getting funding to renovate the animal shelter in Lompoc. The shelter serves more than 4,000 people every year.
The facility, which was built in 1970, will be renovated to make it more inviting for the public and more functional for staff and animals. The project will provide space for potential adoptees to get acquainted with the animals they're considering taking in. Work is expected to be finished as early as the fall of 2012.
The project will cost a total of $300,000. Funding will come from a county grant worth $72,000, a $24,000 contribution by the City of Lompoc, and $10,000 from an independent donor. The remaining cost will be covered by The County Animal Services Trust Fund.
