Designs in for new shelter

By Patricia Ann Speelman pspeelman@civitasmedia.com

SIDNEY — The Shelby County Animal Rescue Foundation (SCARF) has moved into the second phase of its plan to raise money for a new animal shelter.


SCARF Designs for new Animal ShelterPhase 1, completed last fall, was a needs assessment that looked at the current facility, community demographics, shelter residence and adoption records and ideas presented by shelter staff, county commissioners and SCARF members. It was conducted by Shelter Planners of America (SPA) , of Arlington, Texas, a company devoted solely to animal shelter design. SPA architects then used their findings to design a building for Shelby County.


Architect Michael Barnard presented SPA’s concept, Phase 2, to the SCARF board, Shelby County Commissioners Tony Bornhorst and Julie Ehemann, and shelter staff last week.


“He presented a site plan and a (blueprint and rendering) of the building,” said SCARF President Eric Barr. “He (talked) through the designs. We now get an opportunity to fine-tune a couple of things. Then we will have the concept and design ready to go for a (fundraising) campaign.”


County commissioners voted in July to find land for a new animal shelter. The plot they decided on is along Gearhart Road, just east of the sheriff’s office. SCARF plans to raise the money to build the shelter, but the county will own whatever is constructed there.


During SCARF’s initial discussions, the board expressed hope that the shelter would be 6,000 square feet and contain more kennel spaces with solid walls between them, a fenced, outside area accessible to the animals, a paved parking lot, a welcome center and lobby, security systems, public restrooms, meeting rooms in which the public could visit with animals, air conditioning, flush drains, a quarantine area, storage and grooming areas, laundry facilities, staff offices, and a multipurpose room for SCARF use.


SPA designers have met all those requests in their proposal, Barr said.


“We’re transitioning from a dog shelter to an animal shelter and adoption center,” he added.


SCARF has not said when it will begin fundraising, but Barr said the group will start the campaign this year. No amount has been announced.


“The goal of the campaign is yet to be determined, based on ongoing discussion and final building plans,” he said.


The Community Foundation of Sidney and Shelby County will manage the building fund once a fundraising campaign gets underway.
