WHEN: Wednesday, May 18, 2016 at 11:15 a.m.

WHY: These much-needed renovations were made possible thanks to two generous grants. A grant of $260,791 from The Moody Foundation and a $25,000 grant from the Hillcrest Foundation. The facility’s upgrades, which began on February 29, include a total renovation of the dog kennels and puppy room, a replacement of the single cat condos on the adoption floor and the addition of a drainage system in the barn paddocks for recuperating livestock. The drainage system installation is still in progress.

The SPCA of Texas originally opened the building in 2001 as part of its long-range facilities planning, having purchased the 32-acre property in 1997.

“These renovations significantly increase our capacity to provide exceptional care to the animals at our Russell H. Perry Animal Care Center while they wait for their forever homes," said James Bias, SPCA of Texas President and CEO.

"I'm absolutely in LOVE with Kitty (formerly Kaleigh). I know her name isn't original at all but I just started calling her that until I could think of a name and it just stuck - it's so her! I've attached two photos - she's seriously the most beautiful kitty in the world! She loves to steal tennis balls and bones from her dog sister - she thinks she's a dog! She enjoys going for walks and car rides, snuggling with mom, bird watching, drinking from the sink, playing with her pipe cleaners and getting into mom's makeup in the mornings. I couldn't 'imagine life without her. She's the absolute best!"
