The County Executive, along with Public Services Director Mark Newman welcomed the large crowd and shared some of the history of the Animal Shelter and Pet Adoption Center in Oakland County which has been aiding animals by providing shelter and care while trying to find them new, loving homes since 1980.
Project Architect Stephen Augur of Augur Klein Aller Architects, Inc. said, “It’s a great day to be an architect” and “This is a great day for the lost or stray animal in Oakland County.”
Frank Rewold shared that Frank Rewold and Son, Inc, were thankful to be a part of the construction project and happy to be on board from the very beginning.
After opening remarks were made, attendees toured the beautiful facility and enjoyed cider, donuts, hot dogs, and pet swag bags. Take a look at what they saw in our video.
In the Fall of 2017, all of Oakland County’s shelter animals, staff and volunteers will move from their current home off of Baldwin Road in Auburn Hills, to Oakland County’s complex, next to the sheriff’s administration building, east of Telegraph.
The new 35,000 square-foot facility will have a much larger capacity and is expected to house 140 cats and 150 dogs.
