Project Overview
Project Name: FCM: Animal Shelter 17C15003
Project Type: New Construction and Potential Renovation
Project Description: Provide 28,000 square feet of new space for the Animal Shelter. The new shelter will be constructed on the same site where it is currently located. Upon completion, the existing building will be demolished and the parking lot completed.*** The project constructs a new animal shelter at the existing shelter location at Independent Hill on Dumfries Road. The project will replace aging trailers where staff is housed, and several aging/deteriorating outbuildings used for storage. Construction of the new facility will be performed while the existing facility remains operational. When the new facility is complete and occupied, the demolition of the existing facility will begin, followed by the construction of the new parking lot and site work. Features of the new facility will include expanded animal adoption areas, quarantine and visitation areas, staff training area, veterinarian support space, feed and equipment storage areas, exam and grooming rooms, stray animal kennels, and space to address surge capacity related to animal cruelty and hoarding cases. The design will be in full compliance with Association of Shelter Veterinarians facility standards.
