Bucksport’s animal shelter is jogging out of house for dropped and stray pets

The Bucksport Animal Shelter is functioning out of place.

Crafted in the 1980s, the two-building facility takes in shed or stray dogs and cats from 9 communities, but public basic safety officers who oversee the shelter not too long ago alerted city councilors that their mission is having harder as room gets tighter.

“Those structures are just simply also small for what we’re making an attempt to do,” Bucksport law enforcement Deputy Chief David Winchester advised the City Council last month.
