An animal shelter in Manhattan is closed until Jan. 16 while it undergoes renovations.
The T. Russell Reitz Animal Shelter will still accept animal surrenders and process reclaims, said Melissa Kirkwood, community relations officer for the City of Manhattan.
Adoptions will be on hold until the facility reopens on Jan. 16.
Renovations include new flooring throughout the building, and portions of the building will be repainted.
“We want the community to know we are still here to help care for the animal population at this time, however due to the extensive nature of receiving new flooring, it is not conducive to public traffic. We appreciate your patience while we receive these upgrades,” said Eddie Eastes, director of Manhattan Parks and Recreation.
Private donations are paying for the upgrades.
