On Thursday, January 9th, a $20 million expansion—the Animal Care Center—will open.
Some of the highlights are an expanded spay/neuter clinic that will be open Tuesday through Saturday and allow veterinarians to perform 20 surgeries on cats, dogs, and rabbits per day. Wednesdays and Saturdays will have “affordable” vaccination and microchip clinics and a new Education and Training Center will hold seminars and training classes. We can only imagine that the new dog boarding facility will be enjoyed by the animal residents and doggie daycare will be available starting in February. Proceeds from the expanded on-site Shelter Shop (selling animal food, accessories, and clothing) will benefit the shelter programs. And we’re sure no one will be unhappy with the underground parking (no circling, no waiting!).
The goal of this expansion is to “keep pets in homes and out of shelters.”
