Over the next few months different providers will be taking care of animal control in Delaware until January 1st when the state takes over.

During the summer the First State Animal Center and the SPCA in County said it was ending its responsibility for the service early.

The group will still provide temporary service for Sussex and New Castle Counties until the end of the year.

But WBOC reports that Kent County and the city of Wilmington have solicited the services of Chester County SPCA.

The cost to the county is the same as under the old contract.
