The DuPage County Animal Care and Control facility is getting some much needed updates.
First up in the nearly one million-dollar construction project is giving the building’s interior a makeover.
“We’re doing the HVAC system, more insulation in the building, but a new heating and air conditioning system where we’re going to be isolated between rooms, to help stop any spreads of potential diseases, where before it was just the circulation of the air was coming through the entire building,” said Brian Krajewski, County Board member and Chairman of the DuPage County Animal Care and Control Committee.
They’ve also installed more LED and natural lighting, increased energy efficiency and spruced up the kennels.
Renovations are expected to be completed by the end of May, and then Animal Control hopes to begin working on an expansion.
No taxpayer money is being used for the upgrades, as the project is funded by fees collected by Animal Control and by charitable contributions.
During construction, you can still adopt animals from their temporary facility, visit the County’s website to view hours and available animals.
