County Moves Forward With Plans To Build Countywide Animal Impound Facility

After multiple discussions and an ever-growing need, Cache County Sheriff Chad Jensen has obtained bids for the construction of a countywide animal impound facility.

“We kind of ran into some snags about a year and a half ago with places to impound animals,” Jensen told The Herald Journal. “Some of the vet clinics don’t want the strays coming into their facilities, and I understand that with sickness and disease, so we just kind of ran out of a place to to impound animals that people call in.”


Jensen originally proposed the idea and was given a nod of approval to pursue the project — to be built near the County Jail between State Route 30 and 400 North — by the Cache County Council on Oct. 27. Read the rest of the story on HJnews.com.
