Jurupa Valley animal shelter, shuttered by the Clay fire, to reopen
By Staff report
The Riverside County animal shelter in Jurupa Valley – closed for two days in the wake of a compost fire – is set to reopen at 10 a.m. Thursday.
The Clay fire near Van Buren Boulevard and Clay Street burned at a composting facility between the In-N-Out and the Santa Ana River – across the street from the shelter.
Power was knocked out in the area, forcing the shelter to close and send about 150 critters to other rescue facilities.
Though the shelter’s Thursday hours are normally 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., the facility’s annual all-staff meeting is Thursday, shortening the hours to 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
