About. Construct a 21,000 sq. ft. animal shelter on 4 acres to house 16 staff members, medical suite, dog runs to house 90 canines, cat runs for 66 felines, quarantine areas for up to 16 quarantined animals as required by State law, an adoption center with rooms for potential adoption interaction and observation, veterinary service room, laundry room, and food storage areas.
The purpose of the proposed project is to provide our citizens and staff with an up to date facility that meets all state laws and mandated codes for animal services. The improved adoption center will now provide dedicated space for visitors to be able to interact with potentially adoptable animals in both indoor and outdoor settings. The existing facility is also very maintenance intensive, so providing the new facility will decrease maintenance costs and repairs for our facilities department.
