Citing the enormity of the task of transforming the 10,000 square-foot former coal site reclamation facility into the new home of the Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter, officials have moved the opening date to March.

Shelter Director Deanna Myers said items remaining on the to-do list in the building on Busy Lane off of Fifth Street Road include: Installing the new roof and the ceiling tiles, completing the drywall in the office and community room areas, and the kennels in the dog area.

Myers said the shelter is continuing to work to raise funds to pay for the last 1,000 blocks for the kennels, purchase the last 20 sheets of drywall and the last of the 2×4 ceiling tiles.
