NO-KILL SHELTER PROJECT
The Journey Home
ASTRO Foundation is currently raising funds to build a 4,800 s.f. adoption center designed by Indigo Hammond & Playle Architects, LLP of Davis, CA. The shelter has been designed to meet U.C. Davis Shelter Medicine standards. This is a desperately needed project for a growing community of approximately 45,000 people. The existing city shelter was only built to serve a population of 5,000.
This one-acre lot is located at 772 Wakefield Court in the industrial section of Oakdale, CA and provides the perfect spot for our no-kill adoption center. There is plenty of space for indoor/outdoor kennels and play areas, as well as an inviting little cat cafe.
The ASTRO Foundation Adoption Center will have the capacity to house up to 14 dogs and 32 cats at any given time, providing rescue for 100-150 dogs and 450-550 cats per year depending on length of stay. The multi-purpose room will also serve as an education center where students and community members can learn about animal welfare and resources. And what a purrfect place for a birthday party!
