Ellen Levy Animal Control Facility

Ellen Levy Animal Control Facility

This new, larger and more modern facility replaced the older Animal Control facility opened in December 2020. The Animal Control project consisted of the construction of the new 24-kennel Animal Control Facility and the demolition of the existing facility built in the early 70's.  The new Ellen Levy Animal Control Facility boasts heated floors inside and outside to keep the animals' paws warm during winter months. Additionally, a cleaning station and adoption room was added for potential new adopters to get to know their new animals.  The construction of the Ellen Levy Animal Control Facility was successfully administered and managed and was successfully completed on schedule and within budget.  The new, state-of-the-art building was made possible by the generosity of the late Ellen Levy and Councilman Warren Levy.
