Part of this expansion includes turning the shelter into a no-kill facility.

The Genesee County Board of Commissioners approved a $10 million bond on Monday that will provide a 10,000-square-foot expansion to the Genesee County Animal Shelter.

And part of this will allow them to be a no-kill shelter. They currently have a save rate of 90% - the shelter has received awards for being the most improved shelter in the state. In 2016, they took in 2,166 dogs. Of those, 792 were adopted, 307 returned to their owner, 320 were transferred to other shelters, while 269 were euthanized, as well as 194 owner-requested euthanasia procedures.

More than good news - that's GREAT news! They do amazing work in our community.
