According to WKBW, Assembly member Monica P. Wallace (D-Lancaster) and Town of Lancaster Supervisor Ronald Ruffino announced a grant of over $228,000 to the Town of Lancaster to build a new animal shelter.

“This funding will help the Town of Lancaster provide a safe shelter for stray or lost animals and ensure they are comfortable until they can be reunited with owners or moved to a more permanent home,” Assembly member Wallace said.

Plans to break ground on the new shelter will happen later this year; it will be on Pavement Road. The shelter will include nine kennels (two for large dogs), Epoxy flooring, a floor sink, an exercise yard and heating and air conditioning.

“It will definitely make for a better experience for the dogs that we bring into our kennels,"said Jean Karn, the Dog Control Officer for the Town of Lancaster.
