About the Animal Care and Adoption Center Construction began in December 2015 on the new Animal Care and Adoption Center that meets the needs of the County's growing dog and cat population. Friends of Animal Care and Control, a 501c3 non-profit group of volunteers, works closely with the County on this project.The new center’s primary goal is to increase animal adoptions by expanding visitation and maximizing visibility through attractive design, in a setting where prospective pet owners visit dogs in an outdoor courtyard and cats in the community room.
Through partnerships with local animal groups and volunteers, the center emphasizes increasing adoptions and returning pets to their owners. The facility intends to serve as a recreation destination where people can volunteer to walk the dogs, care for the cats or just visit with the animals. The 16,300-square-foot-facility replaces the 1970s-era masonry facility that only housed dogs. There is 12,600 square feet enclosed and 3,700 square feet covered space.
The adoption and care center is located on five acres at 480 Cinnabar Road, adjacent to the former animal shelter.Thompson & Litton, teaming with Shelter Planners of America, oversaw the architectural and design aspects of the building, which has the capacity to house 68 dogs and 64 cats. Shelter Planners completed the needs assessment, feasibility and building program study in 2009 that recommended the new Animal Care and Adoption Center.
Avis Construction Company of Roanoke was awarded the building contract at a negotiated cost of $3.7 million. It was the lowest bidder among 10 companies submitting proposals.

Outside of a jungle of rain-washed pines and junipers spearing the new blueness in the Florida sky, ran a small, tawny-haired boy. His bare ft, extending from his overalled legs, crackled in opposition to the fallen palmettos. He leaped into the air, flinging his arms toward a flock of white doves circling higher than him.
