Torrington animal shelter nearing completion

Posted: Updated:

Torrington's animal shelter is nearing the end of a major addition that's more than doubling the size of its current facility.
The 16-hundred-square-foot addition will provide the shelter with a number of amenities such as a laundry room, an area for small dogs and cats and a quarantine area for sick animals.

Teri Shinost, Torrington Community Service Officer, says the existing shelter is too small for the animals it houses.

Construction was initially slated to wrap-up this past fall, but has hit some minor set-backs along the way, largely due to weather.
"Well the original set-back happened back in April when the super storm hit us and pushed the concrete back," says Shinost.  "And I think in reality I was probably a bit more optimistic about getting additional help down here to do things."
Shinost says things are moving along well, though, and anticipates the new area will be up and running by spring.
