Animal Shelter Expansion
The 16,970 square-foot, two-story expansion area opened to the public on March 14.
The public was invited to the grand opening of the expansion of the Williamson County Regional Animal Center (WCRAS) on Thursday, March 14, 2019.
The 16,970 square-foot, two-story expansion area features a new adoption center, a public lobby, administration offices, new canine and feline adoption kennels, a new entrance off Wilco Way and parking area for the adoption center, and an exercise yard for dogs. Renovations to the existing facility include a new surgery area and surgical prep rooms, repairs to the A/C and plumbing in 35 existing canine kennels, a feline isolation area, and a laundry area with cleanup station. The expansion project has doubled the capacity for cats and added 80 dog kennels. The expansion project was designed by Jackson & Ryan Architects with construction by Vaughn Construction for a guaranteed maximum price of $9,499,295.
WCRAS first opened on March 14, 2007. In the 12 years that it has operated, it has saved more than 48,500 lives.
