Animal Shelter Construction Updates

Welcome to Kalamazoo County Animal Services and Enforcement’s

New Shelter Construction Update Page!!!

This is an exciting time for our staff and the citizens of Kalamazoo County as we watch many years of hope and dreams begin to become a reality just down the road from us!  Please continue to check back to this page to see the progress of our new shelter.  Photos will be updated weekly.  The new shelter is scheduled to open June 19, 2019

UPDATE:  February 18, 2019

With the winter weather still making things difficult, the steel contractorsl managed to get the rest of the roof decked, and the steel framing of the clearstory front of the building completed.  The Masons erected a plastic lean-to on the north front wall where they could work in the weather and complete a section of the 4’ brick facing.  Electrical and plumbing contractors still continue to run lines within the interior part of the building that has been closed up with tarps and plastic across the windows.  Hopefully the weather this week will allow the rest of the snow on the roof to melt and the roof dry out enough, the roofers can seal up the roof.  When this happens, the inside can dry out and more interior block walls can be laid.  It is neat to see the front of the building finally starting to look like an entrance!
