The Cabarrus County Animal Shelter will close to the public for a week beginning Monday.
Staff will receive training as the shelter completes its transition from being run by the Humane Society of Greater Cabarrus County to being operated by the county.
The shelter will reopen Feb. 8.
No euthanasia will occur during the week, said Lt. David Taylor of the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office Animal Control Division. “Animals on site during the transition will receive attention and support from the animal care experts we recently hired to administer shelter operations,” Taylor said.
The shelter, at 244 Betsy Carpenter Place in Concord, will be open during the week to rescue groups by appointment and to owners of missing pets.
No adoptions or surrendering of animals will be allowed.
Beginning Feb. 8, people can adopt pets at the shelter noon-4:30 p.m. weekdays and view missing and adoptable pets at www.cabarruscounty.us/pets.
