SAN ANGELO, TX – Concho Valley PAWS is building a million dollar shelter to continue the no kill initiative.
According to the building permit, released by the City of San Angelo's building and inspections department, Concho Valley PAWS will be building a $1 million shelter behind their facility at 3142 US Hwy 67.
The theme to this building will be the "Dog Dorm." They will put in 48 kennels for dogs of all sizes. 38 of the kennels will be 5X5 and the other 10 will be 7X5. In the 7X5 kennels there will be doors that can be opened during the day for larger dogs to roam.
"We are thrilled to see this project come to life. It’s been a dream 10 years in the making and we are honored to have donors entrust us with the financial means to bring it to life," said Executive Director of Concho Valley PAWS, Jenie Wilson. "This project is all about saving lives and enhancing families with the gift of unconditional love."
Although she says that space will still be an issue, due the large number of intakes, this will help them continue their no-kill initiative.
The main purpose for building the new dorm is to get adoptable pets out of the animal shelter to clear up space for more unadoptable animals such as the elderly or sick.
In the future Wilson says that they have plans to do the same for cats with "Cat Town." This will be three cabins where cats can roam cageless.
