After two years of remodeling our facility inside and out, it’s time to share the Shelter TransFURmation with you! Join us at Animal Aid (5335 SW 42nd Avenue) on Saturday, July 20, from 11:00-4:00 to see the developments first hand and meet our adoptables. Mark your calendars and click here to RSVP.

The Remodel

Phase I (2017): We broke ground on our remodel in July 2017, starting with the lower level of our shelter. Prior to the remodel, this floor was primarily used as storage space. Now, it has been transformed into an operational level of the shelter and includes 2 cat intake rooms, a refurbished dog kennel, a conference room for meetings and small events, an animal care supply storage space, a laundry nook, and a new bathroom.

Phase 2 (2018): In 2018, we fully renovated the upper level of the shelter, creating new animal care and administrative spaces and enhancing existing spaces with new windows, flooring, and more. Remodeled elements of this floor include 3 new cat suites, 1 new office, and 14 redesigned rooms, with highlights such as garden windows, bench seating, and a giant cat tree in our largest free-roam room.

Landscaping (2019): The last part of our remodel focused on the exterior beautification of our shelter, including new and enhanced green spaces surrounding the shelter and a new pedestrian path between parking lots for enhanced safety and comfort.
