24: Animal Shelter Improvements Project

Project Statement

This project will provide funding for renovations, improvements, additions to, and equipping of dog kennels, front offices, and public spaces of the animal shelter. Depending upon costs and funding availability, this project will primarily renovate or replace the dog kennel runs with improved materials and systems to improve the ability to maintain sanitary conditions and to make cleaning easier and more effective, to better serve the needs of animals housed at the facility, and to efficiently provide the level of animal services directed by the Mayor and Commission. Improvements may also include an adjoining dog park area and/or the addition of additional outdoor dog runs for pet and potential adopter interaction. Additionally, to the extent allowed by law, funds may be used as matching funds for leveraging grant opportunities.
