Construction and renovations are underway at the Animal Foundation's 8-acre campus in Las Vegas.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held at the site on Thursday. City and County leaders Animal Foundation board members, donors, staff, and volunteers to celebrate the new renovations.

The project was funded by a $35 million capital campaign known as Mission: Possible 2020 - All of Us for All of Them. The program calls for the growth of lifesaving programs such as education and resources to keep people and pets together, along with better medical and behavioral help to ensure pets get adopted.

The new Engelstad Family Adoption Center will provide a permanent facility for safe adoption areas for cats and other small animals, as well as administration offices and community education facilities. 

A complete renovation of the Lied Animal Shelter will provide hospital-grade, longer-term animal housing, improved isolation areas for the sick, and more comprehensive veterinary care with an upgraded clinic.

The Animal Foundation says it still needs the support of the community to complete its objectives for Mission: Possible 2020. You can learn how to help here.
