Chesterfield County built a animal shelter that cost more than $900,000. The residents there spoke up and the county listened. It is a modern up-to-date facility that has more than 80 dog runs and a cat house. Chesterfield County has less than half of the animal intake as Lancaster County.
Lancaster County Animal Control has asked the county for a simple pole barn with kennels for many years, but has always been told the county ran out ot money.
