The lost animals of Romeoville now have a little more space to roam with the opening of the new animal control shelter on Anderson Drive. The new facility has nine kennels, two of which are larger to accommodate bigger breeds. All kennels have individual doors that connect the inner kennels to outer kennels so the animals can get fresh air. When it comes time to stretch their legs, the animals have access to a fenced in, pond side yard. The structure was designed by White & Company and built by Harbour Contractors.
“Some very passionate people have been behind this project,” said Mayor John Noak. “We’ve had a lot of businesses and individuals make donations to getting the new animal control shelter built and that goal has been achieved.”
Residents who find lost animals can contact the animal warden at 815-886-1018. Those who have lost a pet can call the same number to see if their animal is occupying the new facility.
