Posted to Animal Services Facility by Heidi Kellum

Construction crews at the Animal Services Facility have completed the parking lot asphalt and the outdoor barn. They are currently finishing the remaining site work, including mechanical and plumbing, installing exterior fencing, and applying concrete polish flooring. The installation of architectural finishes will be ongoing until the end of the project, currently estimated for completion in winter 2021.

This project constructs a new, 21,450-square-foot animal services facility in Leesburg to serve as the primary location for Loudoun County Animal Services (LCAS), replacing the existing 15,000-square-foot facility in Waterford. 

The new facility will provide many of the same services as the current animal shelter, including pet adoptions; animal welfare law enforcement; housing of stray, abandoned, or relinquished companion animals; dog license sales; volunteer opportunities; dispatch services; low-cost rabies vaccines, educational programs; and pet retention counseling.
