GEORGETOWN, Del. - The animal sanctuary, which recently lost its dog control contract, plans to stay open as a shelter.
Workers from Safe Haven Animal Sanctuary tells WMDT that they still have more than 100 animals and have no plans of shutting down. According to workers, they will continue to place all animals in homes and will not take them to kill shelters.
Safe Haven is operating strictly as a shelter since the court relieved them of animal control.
On Friday, the Kent County SPCA has taken over all dog control duties from Safe Haven. Earlier this month, the Kent County Levy Court voted to hand over the reins at the end of this month. The new contract came after Safe Haven failed to keep up with the responsibility amid some serious financial troubles.
