With the North Fork Animal Welfare League having kicked off its new mission to privatize and take over management of the Riverhead Animal Shelter Friday -- a plan was pitched and green-lighted by the town board Thursday to relocate the animal shelter to Enterprise Park at Calverton.
Originally, the thought was to site the facility near the dog park at EPCAL, but costs for infrastructure and a necessary expansion of the sewer district were prohibitive, Councilman Jim Wooten said.
Instead, the possiblity of moving the animal shelter to the Henry Pfeifer Community Center was pitched -- and the board agreed to move forward.
Do you think EPCAL is a good place for the new animal shelter? Are you pleased the facility has been privatized? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
