Originally built in 1968, WVHS’ current facility is a collection of additions built on an as-­needed basis. Without proper funding and faced with an ever-growing need, the facility is cramped, poorly lit, and uncomfortable for both animals and humans. While WVHS strives to provide the most humane and nourishing care to its animal population, it is unable to provide more than one general isolation room, one intake area, less­-than-­ideal group housing, and little room for enrichment. A cat room doubles as an office, a bathroom doubles as a temporary dog room, and a utility room serves as a veterinary area. The proposed project will enable WVHS to address and remedy all of these concerns.
