Liberty County Animal Shelter
This new Animal Shelter includes two buildings under one roof, connected by a covered breezeway between the buildings. The 1,300 sf administrative suite includes a reception area, restrooms, break room for employees, staff offices and a work area for volunteers.
The animal shelter building is approximately 2,700 sf with a unique indoor/outdoor kennel layout, with 16 total kennel units, and provides access for the animal, either in or out, through a small door within each kennel unit. The interior of the kennel building contains a continuous resinous epoxy floor system throughout. This floor has been specifically designed to withstand the harsh chemicals used in keeping the shelter floors sanitary and should provide many years of trouble-free service. The entire interior kennel building is conditioned by a unique HVAC system that is designed to help mitigate odors and provide adequate fresh air throughout the building, while keeping humidity within acceptable levels. Each kennel is outfitted with a stainless steel automatic animal watering fixture, a stainless steel food bowl, and a bed which folds up for easy cleaning. These beds are treated with an anti-microbial chemical that prevents mold and mildew growth and is non-toxic to animals.
The overall plumbing system has been designed to adequately handle animal waste with little maintenance, as well as aid in cleaning and preventing odor.
There is a puppy room and a cat room for visiting these animals separate from the larger dog kennels. The rear of the facility contains a restroom, shower area, laundry, storage, and a complete exam/euthanasia room.
