Animal Shelter Getting Makeover

KSAL StaffJanuary 16, 2016

The Salina Animal Shelter will be getting a much-needed makeover this month.

Animal Services Supervisor Vanessa Cowie tells KSAL News that resurfacing and sealing of the floor, and replacement of the aged aluminum kennels will begin next week.

The resurfaced, sealed floor will be more comfortable for the animals. It will be easier to clean, making it more sanitary. It is replacing an aging, cracked floor.

The new kennels will be state of the art. They will be stainless steel, with glass fronts. The glass fronts will be frosted at the bottom, a feature that will have a calming effect,giving the animals more privacy.

The shelter has been working to get its animal population down in anticipation of the construction. It is currently at about half-capacity. The remaining animals will be temporarily moved to a boarding facility when the project begins.

The project is funded through a grant from Petco.

The Salina Animal Shelter is a nonprofit organization, and a division of Salina’s Parks and Recreation Department. The organization provides animal control, adoption services and wildlife management. The shelter is a no-kill shelter, meaning that over 90 percent of the animals it receives are saved.
