This project consists of constructing a new 10,900 SF Animal Shelter for the City of El Cajon. The state-of-the-art facility will include 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 project is funded by Proposition O special revenues, the half-cent sales tax increase approved by El Cajon voters in November of 2004 for improvements to public safety facilities and a new animal shelter. A decade later, the new building will double the size of the current 50-year-old shelter and will be designed in a way that allows for potential future expansion. It is the City of El Cajon’s first collaborative design-build project and will be built to LEED certification standards.
