It’s been a long time coming, but the building of a new, state-of-the-art multi-million dollar animal shelter will become a reality within a year. Ground breaking is expected in March.
The new shelter will be funded through bonding resulting from the 1/8 cent sales tax increase that took place with additional funds raised by CASI — Carson Animal Services Initiative — the organization pledging $200,000 to be used as a community “donation.”
The operation of the current animal shelter is now operated by the non-profit Nevada Humane Society through a contract with the city effective Oct. 1, 2014.
Ryan is overseeing the day-to-day operations and is instrumental in the design and building of the shelter.
