GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - Seven years in a building that was falling apart at the seams, led to seven months of repairs, and now the Mesa County Animal Services building is officially finished with renovations, and is open to the public.
The reason for the renovations started with the foundation of the building. The space underneath the ground moved, causing the floor to bend and curve with it. This forced major cracks in the floors and windows, along with doors that would not open all the way, and many other issues.
Those with Animal Services said this transformative time was not easy, but the benefits are exponential. "An arduous journey, but we were able to pull that off with the staff doing an awesome job," said Doug Frye, the manager of Mesa County Animal Services.
Those with Mesa County Animal Services would like to thank the public for being so understanding throughout the renovations. They would also like to extend a thank you to Roice-Hurst Humane Society, Grand Valley Pets Alive, Grand Rivers Humane Society, C.L.A.W.S., and the Rifle Animal Shelter for their assistance during the construction.
Mesa County Animal Services is open Monday - Friday from 11 A.M. to 4 P.M., and Saturday and Sunday from 11 A.M. to 1 P.M. They will be closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve.
