This state-of-the-art 14,291 SF El Cajon Animal Shelter facility includes administrative offices, housing for animals, veterinary services for sick and injured sheltered animals, grooming, play and interaction areas, pet adoption services, an exercise area and more. The new single story facility is double the size of the previous 50-year-old shelter, built in 1957, and is designed to enable future expansion. The shelter houses animals from small mammals to house reptiles, including 135 new dog kennels and cat condos. The no-kill animal care shelter is the City of El Cajon’s first collaborative design-build project and was funded by Proposition O special revenues. The project was built to LEED® Certification Standards, meets Title 24 and Cal Green standards.
