The shelter is located at 3951 Fruitvale Ave, and is open Wednesday from 2 p.m to 7 p.m.. Thursday through Tuesday their hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (closed Sunday).
This year alone, over 400 pets have been adopted from Kern County Animal Services. The shelter asks the community to continue to #AdoptDontShop.
