KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The animal shelter in Liberty, Missouri is working to relocate all of its animals in anticipation of continued flooding around the Missouri River.

The city of Liberty tweeted the news on Monday, saying the location would no longer accept new animals.

The Liberty Animal Control and Shelter is located off of Old State Highway 210, close to the Missouri River. The city said there is already high water in the area, which prompted the decision.

The shelter is looking for owners and rescue groups to help get all of the animals out of the location.

Liberty is currently working on a new, $2.6 million animal shelter to accommodate the growing size of the city.
