The new 14,000 square foot facility will quadruple the amount of space the shelter had at its old building, allowing the staff and volunteers to help even more animals.

They’ve been at their Linden Avenue location for more than three decades and say they were able to help “thousands upon thousands of animals” in the smaller 3,000 square foot space.
