Florida Keys SPCA Future Home. With its new 30-year contract


approved by the Board of County Commissioners at a spe- cial meeting in May, the final piece was put in place for the Florida Keys SPCA to go ahead with its plans to build a new ani- mal shelter on a one acre, city- owned site, located just a few hundred yards from the present shelter on College Road. The city of Key West had previously agreed to a long-term lease with Monroe County for whom the FKSPCA is the contractor for animal control from Key West to Mile Marker 16.7. “Our new home will allow us to better serve our commu-


nity with expanded and new programs, as well as our contracted animal control services,” explained FKSPCA executive director, Tammy Fox. “And it will be built on land with a nine-foot ele- vation, so we won't have to worry about flooding any longer, a wonderful bonus.” The organization plans to begin the permitting process


immediately, with a groundbreaking estimated by mid-fall 2015. FKSPCA president Jane Dawkins acknowledged the coopera- tion of local and county government: “Needless to say after all these years we are excited that our dream will finally become


reality, thanks in large part to City of Key West and Monroe County staff who have worked closely with us to make it hap- pen. Now we can create the safe, healthy environment that the animals in our care and our staff so desperately need and that our community deserves.” The new facility will be


paid for by the FKSPCA.


According to Capital Campaign chair Jeffrey Johnson, the non- profit is more than halfway there toward raising the estimated $4 million construction costs. Bacon Group, Inc. will oversee the design of the facility. The Clearwater-based firm had just signed a new contract


with the North Shore Animal League (NSALA) in Port Washington, New York to design a cat adoption cage-free habi- tat called Bianca’s Furry Friends, when they received word on the FKSPCA project. Mindy Bacon informed us that Bianca is the name of the beloved Bulldog who lived with radio person- ality Howard Stern and his wife Beth Ostrosky Stern. She passed away two summers ago. Beth is the spokesperson for NSALA and a major donor for the project. Florida Keys: FKSPCA.org. 305.294.4857.
