First Look: Pasadena Humane Society's Expanded Animal Care Campus

The Pasadena Humane Society will undergo a 35,000 square-foot expansion.

From a Pasadena Humane Society and SPCA press release.

The Pasadena Humane Society and SPCA is expanding its role as a leading animal welfare provider in Los Angeles County by constructing its new Animal Care Campus on the corner of Raymond Avenue and Del Mar Boulevard.

The state-of-the-art facility may open as early as January 2014. The 35,000 square-foot expansion includes:

  • A Wellness and Spay/Neuter Facility
  • A Behavior, Training and Education Center
  • An Outdoor Enrichment Area
  • A Larger Retail Store
  • Subterranean parking
  • 36 new kennels

“This is the next step in continuing to provide excellent programs for the animals,” says Steve McNall, President and CEO of the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA. “No one else is doing this in the area, especially during these rough economic times. The Animal Care Campus will be a viable community resource that will help us reach our goal of zero euthanasia of adoptable animals.”

In partnership with Community Bank and with support from private donors, the $20 million dollar expansion project starts a new chapter for the 109-year-old agency. The Animal Care Campus will be a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design building certified by the U.S. Green Building Council.

All daily operations, services and programs will continue during construction. A public groundbreaking ceremony will be held on June 20 at 11 a.m. at 361 S. Raymond Ave.

So THAT'S where my donation dollars went. *lol* Seriously, I think it's fantastic! Sure wish they were a no-kill rather than a low-kill facility, though.

PHS is also the primary Animal Control Agency in the area. Officers are contracted to enforce city codes.
