Watch: SPCA's New 'Satellite' Shelter Officially Opens
Call it 'SPCA West.'
The Jefferson County SPCA officially cut the ribbon Saturday on a small 'satellite' shelter inside the Petco store in Towne Center Plaza off Outer Arsenal Street. The shelter is really a showcase for animals that are available for adoption, and was built with $300,000 from Petco, according to SPCA officials.
One of the first people to take advantage of the new shelter: Emily Woodmansee and her family, which brought home a kitten.
"I'm so excited. We've been looking for a while," she said. "And we came here and finally found the one that fits."
Her husband, Anthony, noted that the shelter pets come with shots and are spayed or neutered, and need homes.
"It's just a better choice," he said.
