After a decade of dedicated hard work and selfless support from our thousands of supporters, the ACS dream of a new community clinic and kennel has finally come true.

On Oct. 10, we officially unveiled this new $1.77 million facility to the public. This new facility greatly improves our quality of care and efficiency for our rescued animals.

Our original kennel was built in 1982 and at the time was considered state-of-the-art. It was long and narrow, and each dog had an indoor and outdoor run with doors that allowed it to move freely inside to outside, weather permitting. There was a wide center aisle and drainage ditches in order to clean efficiently every day. In the 30+ years since our kennel was built, we continued to see it deteriorate to the point where the dog warden deemed a portion unusable. We know now the needs of shelter dogs are much different.
