An expanded, modern facility will positively impact the animals in our care and shelter visitors, staff and volunteers alike. Cats and dogs will have dedicated habitats designed to reduce stress and allow for socialization. The visitors and staff will have adoption meeting spaces, and volunteers will be able to move more freely to assist with shelter needs. Below are the proposed renderings* to achieve these goals.
