ELMSFORD - A Westchester animal shelter is in the process of relocating more than 100 dogs and cats after building engineers deemed its building too dangerous.

Workers at Pets Alive, located on Warehouse Road in Elmsford, noticed wide cracks in the building last week. Engineers inspected the building and said there wasn't enough structure underneath the foundation to support the building.

Workers were told that the animals must be out of the shelter by the end of the weekend. While some of the animals are heading to a shelter in Orange County, others need a foster home right away.

Pets Alive Executive Director Erin Guilshan says it's unclear how long they will be out of the building, saying more tests need to be done.
