"Animals are being held much longer now. Several years ago they were only held about three days, now they're being held up to two weeks. The adoption rate has tripled in the last 5 years. So as the animals stay longer, they need more space," explains Paul Washburn, thePresident of Rescue the Animals SPCA.
Funding for this construction will both be a public and a private partnership.
