Liberty will temporarily use the old morgue on Neilson and Teelman in Fresno as an animal shelter.
Some construction is underway in the parking lot to accommodate portable kennels.
The S.P.C.A. parted ways with the city and county and Liberty will take over on October 1st.
The county contracted with Liberty Animal Control for less than what it paid the Central California SPCA to rescue stray or injured animals.
Fresno County Supervisor Henry Perea said, "I see a better future for animals in this community. I see us working with the rescue groups and it's time to move forward."
The site should be ready by October 1st.
