LORDSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Animal adoptions are on hold at the Trumbull County Animal Welfare League this week. That’s because they are preparing to move into a new facility.
Workers and volunteers were busy Monday packing up boxes at the shelter on Brunstetter Road and loading them into moving vans. It’s all being moved to a new 46,000 square foot building. The new facility sits on 20 acres of land on Youngstown-Kingsville Road in Vienna.
Office Manager Jan Solomon said the new building will be better for the animals.
“It is more conducive for them. The puppy playroom has rubberized mats and lots of room. It has special flooring throughout the rest of the building,” said Solomon.
All of the animals will be moving Tuesday. The new center will be open for adoptions beginning May 6.
