C.W. Driver Companies broke ground on a 10,900-square-foot El Cajon Animal Shelter, in El Cajon, CA. The $9.3-million state-of-the-art facility will include housing for animals, veterinary services, grooming, play and interaction areas, pet adoption services, an exercise area, and administrative offices.
The single-story shelter, tentatively scheduled for completion in spring of 2018, is funded by Proposition O special revenues, a half-cent sales tax increase approved by El Cajon voters in November of 2004. More than a decade later, the new building will double the size of the current 50-year-old shelter, and was designed to allow for potential future expansion.
The new animal care center will be located at 1373 N. Marshall Ave., near the shelter’s current location. It is the City of El Cajon’s first collaborative design-build project.
