Construction is under way to add a second-floor education center to Cat Depot, one of the largest non-profit, no-kill feline rescue and adoption centers in the nation.
The already 10,000-square-foot facility will add about 700 square feet to accommodate community outreach programs. Like the existing facility, the expansion will be hurricane rated and provide handicap accessibility, including a lift to the center. It will feature a drop down media screen, kitchenette and bathroom, and will accommodate 40-plus individuals.
“This is a dearly needed component for Cat Depot,” said Executive Director Shelley Thayer. “We currently hold education and training classes for the public in our hallways and small conference room. This addition will allow us to broaden our teaching arena and reach out to a greater number of children and adults.”
Beyond Design Contracting Inc. is building the center, designed by local architect Barron Schimberg. It is scheduled for completion in the fall.
