The Burlington Animal Shelter is up and running again at a temporary location.
An expansion and renovation of the facility is scheduled to get underway in a couple of weeks.
Des Moines County Humane Society Co-President Susan Denk says the shelter is slated to nearly double in size.
She says the most important improvement will be a new ventilation system that separates between sick animals, health animals and humans.
The shelter had to be cleared out in anticipation of the upcoming construction.
