From their facebook page.
"There is false information circulating in the social media world that we are closing and the animas are in danger.
Kern County Animal Control plans to continue caring for all the animals that can't be adopted. We continue to work with ani...mal rescue groups and individuals to adopt as many animals as possible and we have reduced all adoption fees to make it as easy as possible to adopt. But when the time comes to leave the shelter, Kern County Animal Control will move all remaining animals to a new County facility.
Our current adoption fees are $15 for dogs and $5 for cats. In just over 2.5 half weeks, we have adopted out over 320 animals and placed an additional 200 animals with our rescue partners.
Please share to let the world know that #kerncountyanimalcontrolcares"

|mycobraracr||It is NOT being shut down. It was a rumor that started. They have recently lowered the adoption fee's and the rumor started they were being shut down. I just saw a "press release" discussing this last night. If I can find it again I will post it.|

Oh my God. I am devastated by looking at this website! So many dogs. So many pitties especially. How utterly tragic.
I guess I get lulled into some kind of false hope about animals because my shelter is so small. We reached animal number 700 for the year on Saturday. That's cats and dogs.
Heavenly day. I'm going to be dwelling on this for a long time. I can't get those babies out of my mind.

Bakersfield, CA - Kern County Animal Control (updated info)
Kern County Animal Shelter is being shut down and they need to find homes for a few hundred dogs by September 30th. They have several german shepherds, puppies and adults, both purebred and mix breed. Please check them out if you think you could take one in. They plan to euthanize any dogs they can't find a home for or another shelter to take.

Check both adoptable & lost/stray for the shepherds.
