RALEIGH — Wake County commissioners voted unanimously Monday to spend nearly $530,000 for improvements at the Animal Care, Control and Adoption Center.
The money will be used to create a larger space in which to house dogs with upper respiratory infections. Jennifer Federico, the center’s director, said this will reduce the spread of illness.
Work also will be done to increase the number of quarantine dog kennels – necessary because the center now serves as the shelter for animals coming from Cary, Raleigh and Garner.
The animal-receiving area of the center will be reworked to allow for dogs and cats to be segregated as they are brought in, and for the staff to be separated from both.
