The new Guilford Animal Shelter is the culmination of an effort that began in 1992. The shelter includes a comfortable waiting area, an examination room, washers, dryers, office, and four refrigerators.
The Guilford Animal Shelter sits on9.8 acres and is called the Guilford Public Safety Complex. The Complex consists of a Police Station, Emergency Services Station and the new Animal Shelter. The building is closer to the geographic center of town and is located next to the ramp to I-95 south bound and will allow for better and efficient animal control response.
The dogs are housed in 5- by 5-footkennels, with heated concrete floors. The shelter has 10 dog kennels and eight cat cages in separate rooms, and can accommodate more kennels if necessary.
Dog and cats are housed separately, with kennels set aside in both areas for animals that need to be quarantined. All kennels can be opened to the exterior pens and an outdoor dog run area.
Completed in September, 2005, the Guilford Animal Shelter has improved the chance of adoption for Guilford’s local strays.
