In the meantime, adoption fees for dogs are reduced to $100 and all other animals will be free. Adopters will still need to complete the adoption process.

LCSPCA will also be placing animals with other shelters and rescues.

There is no date set for when the shelter will completely shut down, but officials say it will likely be sometime in August.
