Notice of Emergency Procurement for Additions to the Sussex County Animal Shelter
On October 15, 2020, Sussex County entered into an emergency contract with James R. Jones Builder, Inc. for additions to the County's Animal Shelter, located at 14493 Robinson Road, Stony Creek, Virginia 23882.

This procurement was designated as an emergency pursuant to Virginia Code § 2.2- 4303(F) because the County’s existing Animal Shelter does not provide for safe social distancing practices by staff and patrons. Social distancing has been recommended by the Center for Disease Control and required by the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry to help stop the spread of the virus. Outdoor dog runs and a separate room just for cats will be added to the Animal Shelter. These additions will allow the Animal Shelter to operate while ensuring staff and patrons are properly distanced while viewing and taking care of the animals.
