Construction of the P.E.T. Care Campus has finally begun! After almost ten years of working toward the goal of a new Animal Shelter, Friends of Cookeville/Putnam County Animals took great delight in witnessing the Cookeville City Council vote unanimously to approve both the contract and bond issue to complete funding the new state-of-the-art Animal Shelter! The new shelter will be built on the P.E.T. Care Campus located adjacent to Hyder-Burks Pavilion on Gainesboro Grade.
* THANK YOU to everyone who donated time, money and materials to reach this milestone! Check back here often for building progress & updates!
* KUDOS to Architect Mary Johnson (Michael Brady Inc.) for designing the plans for this fab new Shelter!
* HURRAY! T.U. Parks Construction Co. from Chattanooga has been awarded the project.
* YIPPEE! Donnie Elkins of Elk Mountain Construction has begun site clearing!
DON’T STOP NOW!
Now we need to work on furnishings for the new facility. Naming opportunities still available for several important rooms in the new shelter, as well as, many items needed to furnish the interior areas, benches and landscape materials for the exterior. Detailed information coming soon.
WHAT ELSE WILL BE ON THE P.E.T. CARE CAMPUS YOU ASK?
P.E.T. stands for Pets, Education &Training in a Campus style environment.
In addition to the new Cookeville/Putnam County Animal Shelter, the Campus will include two Roger & Marion Moore off-leash dog parks, an educational center and a Small Animal Disaster Rescue facility. Do we hear a big “WOOF”?
