BOCA RATON, FL– Tri-County Animal Rescue, a non-profit 100% no kill shelter for dogs and cats throughout the region, announced a world-class Campus building program totaling 64,000 square feet at an event for supporters recently. During the event, pets available for adoption paraded around the grounds. Several long-time supporters announced financial commitments to the project. The Campus build out will enable Tri-County to expand its services and accommodate the need for additional space for the increase the shelter has seen in the need to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home dogs and cats to caring families and assist in community-aid for low income pet owners.
The $10 million multi-phase capital campaign and build out will start with a 9,000 square foot rescue clinic (a ($4.9) million capital campaign), which is currently under construction and scheduled to open in February 2019. Phase two is an 11,435 square foot adoption and residential facility that will serve as an adoption and community program hub allowing temporary residents for 200+ dogs and 200+ cats. This building will also include “cage-free” areas for age and size appropriate dogs. There will be a“HosPets” center and Mausoleum ($5.1 million capital campaign).
Once complete, the new world-class state of the art 64,000 square foot campus will feature a canine adoption center, a feline adoption center, long-term housing, veterinary surgical center and care and isolation areas for rescues and “HosPets” for animals with medical needs. Much of the new facility will be available to the public including a mausoleum with serenity garden, increased in-ground burial plots, agility course, in-ground pool and boarding and grooming, as well as public spaces for education and training programs. NOTE; Need to incorporate moving the thrift store on site and be careful how community use is interpreted.
“The new campus will allow us to provide our rescue animals with the rehabilitation and care that they need and develop strong community support and aid for low income pet owners,” said Sharon DiPietro, chairman of the board for Tri-County Animal Rescue. “The services that Tri-County provides to animals and their owners serves the entire community. The capital campaign will include naming rights and other opportunities to help support and offer a safe haven to animals.”
“Our shelter knows no boundaries and we rescue pets who have been displaced due to natural disasters and other situations. Our mission is to provide these animals with medical treatment, care, attention and a forever home,” said Suzi Goldsmith, co-founder and executive director of Tri-County Animal Rescue.
