Contact the shelter Phone: 559-562-6577 (open Tue-Sat)- get your name on the dog and then email me and we can help work on transport immediately.
Unconfirmed sources indicate that any dogs remaining will NOT BE accepted by Porterville Animal Control.

There are cats, big dogs, small dogs and pups too. If you call, I think there are other dogs not on the website so you can talk to the shelter personnel.

According to the Porterville City Council meetings on 6 October and Jenna Chandler from the Porterville Recorder the City of Lindsay Animal Shelter is going to close its doors and it is going to be taken over by Porterville Animal Control.

There are still several dogs available most of whom have been fixed and chipped and UTD with fees waived.

Anyone who wishes to save one of these animals MUST contact the Shelter directly.

Currently the DEADline is 13 October but realistically you probably have until Saturday the 17th since the Lindsay Shelter is closed on Sun and Mon.

It is doubtful that any dogs can be adopted after that as Porterville will need time to move in and set up shop.

You all may draw your own conclusions or try to verify from either Porterville Animal Shelter and/or Jenna Chandler.
