Our Facility

IMG 8211compressed

After long, long years of planning, fundraising, and redesigning, followed by a year of construction, Saving Grace’s animals moved into their new quarters on November 29, 2011.

Thanks to the generosity of our community, the animals have a healthier, less stressful environment.  The new 13,000 square foot facility was built on the current property.  This new building, using modern shelter design, features:


  • Kennels designed to minimize stress, barking and the spread of kennel cough & disease
  • Indoor/outdoor runs for all adult dogs
  • Cats housed in cat "condos," a more home-like group setting, rather than small kennels
  • Special rooms within the main building for puppies and kittens whose immune systems are still developing
  • Special room for small animals like rabbits and guinea pigs, who are so prone to stress
  • Separate spaces within the intake reception area for dogs and cats to make this transition less stressful to already frightened animals
  • A welcoming environment for people to come meetIMG_7624 our animals
  • Private “Get Acquainted” rooms for families to interact with an adoptable pet outside the busy kennels
  • Pleasant working conditions to attract and retain volunteers to assist with animal care
  • A spacious and ergonomically correct dish washing room and a laundry room with two sets of washers and dryers to make these daunting tasks easier
  • A built-in grooming bathtub for easier to dog bathing; allowing them to look and feel their best
  • A multi-purpose room to give us space for volunteer orientations, meetings, dog training classes and educational classes for youth

Our goal is to increase the number of pets adopted to loving, permanent homes. To each and every person who has given of their time, talent and treasure to make the dream of a new building a reality: thank you!  Your generosity makes a big difference in the lives of all the animals who will come to us for help.
