Hardin County Animal Services closes doors to public after staffer contracts COVID-19

After a staff member contracted COVID-19, Hardin County Animal Services closed its doors to the public Monday and will re-open Monday, Jan. 4, today said county Mayor Kevin Davis.
“The animals will continue to be cared for, fed and cleaned,” said Animal Services Director Chris Sikes in a social media post Monday. Staff will keep dogs and cats “warm, fat and happy, work with people at the gates and perform deep cleaning and sterilization of the facility.”
Sikes said staff “will continue responding to emergency calls only, as we can, while practicing social distancing regulations.”
For assistance with spay/neuter vouchers, call 731-925-3303 from the front gates on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Staff will come out to the gates to assist. Bring a state issued photo ID and current utility bill to qualify for vouchers.
“We look forward to seeing everyone after the new year. Please have a safe and happy holiday and spay and neuter your pets,” Sikes said.
