The City of Perry, Georgia opened a new animal shelter this week.
The shelter will have 21 dog pens in a climate-controlled building with outdoor runs. It also has a room for cats and a separate room to quarantine cats.
The city has sought for years to get a new shelter, which has been delayed by the cost.
Last March, the City Council approved a contract for $544,022 to build the new facility, which also has an exam room and a quarantine area for dogs. The old block building nearby that had been the shelter is beyond repair and likely will be torn down, said Perry police Capt. Bill Phelps, who oversees animal control.
“This is a thousand times better than what we had,” Phelps said. “The animals were exposed to inclement weather. Now it can be raining or it can be snowing and you can still come down here and adopt a dog, It just lends a good atmosphere that people will want to come to.”
Angie Reed, the senior animal control officer, said she is also hopeful that with a better building more people will come to adopt dogs.
“It’s a lot cleaner and a lot nicer,” she said. “People will actually want to come down here and look at dogs.”
The Friends of the Perry Animal Shelter also has a separate facility where it holds dogs and cats from the shelter for adoption.
