City council to consider animal shelter expansion on Thursday

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Lubbock City Council will consider adding on to the new animal shelter on Thursday.

The proposal is for a nearly 5,000 square foot addition to the facility on southeast Loop 289.

It would cost a bit more than $946,000 and would add 45 additional kennels to the 50 already there.

The city broke ground on the new shelter back in April of 2011.

It cost $4.8 million, including a $1.5 million donation, but the new facility did not allow the city to close the old shelter on Ash Avenue.

City leaders hope to eventually close the old shelter and have all animal services operations at the new facility.
