Prairie Paws Adoption Center, 2222 W. Warrior Trl., is seeking the public’s help temporarily housing animals while construction crews tear out ceiling panels to install new duct work and knock down walls to complete new kennels. The construction is predicted to begin in May and will approximately take one month to complete. It will not affect the operating hours of the shelter, but will temporarily displace over 20 dogs (medium-large size) and 20 cats.
The construction is part of the shelter’s expansion project that started in March 2017 and is predicted to be complete summer 2018. The new expansion will triple the amount of cat capacity, double the amount of dog capacity, and expand the surgical area to increase the number of spay/neuter surgeries, heartworm treatments and dental health.
The temporary foster homes do not have to be located in Grand Prairie, but must be in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Fosters must be at least 21-years-old.
