This building was a newly constructed 15,000 sf facility featuring unique animal viewing areas and interactive computer kiosks that allow customers to view and research animals. Pet get-acquainted rooms and a fenced outdoor running area allow prospective owners to interact with animals before taking them home. Equipped with a state-of-the-art ventilation system, laundry room and janitorial amenities, the shelter is clean and healthy for visiting animals. A sally port for four vehicles allows for easy transfer of animals from vehicles into the center. A rain-catching cistern at the front of the building is used to irrigate the shelter's many drought-tolerant Texas plants.
