From a Pasadena Humane Society and SPCA press release.
The Pasadena Humane Society and SPCA is expanding its role as a leading animal welfare provider in Los Angeles County by constructing its new Animal Care Campus on the corner of Raymond Avenue and Del Mar Boulevard.
The state-of-the-art facility may open as early as January 2014. The 35,000 square-foot expansion includes:
- A Wellness and Spay/Neuter Facility
- A Behavior, Training and Education Center
- An Outdoor Enrichment Area
- A Larger Retail Store
- Subterranean parking
- 36 new kennels
“This is the next step in continuing to provide excellent programs for the animals,” says Steve McNall, President and CEO of the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA. “No one else is doing this in the area, especially during these rough economic times. The Animal Care Campus will be a viable community resource that will help us reach our goal of zero euthanasia of adoptable animals.”
In partnership with Community Bank and with support from private donors, the $20 million dollar expansion project starts a new chapter for the 109-year-old agency. The Animal Care Campus will be a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design building certified by the U.S. Green Building Council.
All daily operations, services and programs will continue during construction. A public groundbreaking ceremony will be held on June 20 at 11 a.m. at 361 S. Raymond Ave.
