San Bernardino County’s Animal Care staff are prepared for the heatwave and are making tremendous efforts to keep the animals at the Devore Animal Shelter safe and cool with temperatures expected to reach 106 degrees this weekend. On Tuesday, staff and volunteers helped unload the delivery of hundreds of pounds of ice purchased by the Animal Care team to keep the animals cool and comfortable, additional ice deliveries will also occur throughout the heatwave so this extra cooling measure can be implemented through Wednesday of next week.  As an added measure, large commercial evaporative coolers and the misting system are used daily to keep the ambient temperatures comfortable in all kennel buildings. Our caring staff will continue with these and other measures for a focus on the safety of the animals all throughout Summer.
