After over a year of construction, DuPage County Animal Care and Control center’s nearly $1 million renovation is complete.
Highlights of the revamp include brand new floors, a new HVAC system and noise abatement to make the kennels a happier place for it’s four-legged residents.
“Our ultimate hope is to be able to enhance our animals quality of life for the time they’re with us, we want their stay to be as stress free and as healthy as possible. The other thing we’re hoping to do is to be able to help more animals. By providing a calming environment, we’re hoping that we’ll be able to help more animals succeed and find that happily ever after,” said Kristie Lecaros, Shelter Manager for DuPage County Animal Care and Control.
And all of the upgrades were done without spending any tax-payer money, with one third of the funds coming from the Friends of DuPage County Animal Care and Control Foundation and the rest from fees collected by Animal Control.
The facility can house up to 75 dogs and over 100 cats at a time.
