The Pasadena Humane Society will debut an advanced care center said to provide a new animal welfare standard, Jan. 9.

The $20 million Animal Care Center broke ground last June and will include a new Wellness Clinic with a "high-volume spay/neuter clinic, larger behavior and training center, dog daycare and boarding, larger onsite pet store and more underground parking, officials said in a written statement.

The goal of the expansion is to keep animals out of the shelter and in homes, officials said.

"It’s a very exciting time,” said Steven R. McNall, president and CEO of the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA. “We’re focusing on expanded programs to help stop the tragedy of pet overpopulation. The Animal Care Center is a proactive approach to keep animals in their homes and out of the shelter."

Features in Detail
    •    An expanded affordable spay/neuter clinic open Tuesday through Saturday, allowing PHS veterinarians to perform 20 spay/neuter surgeries on dogs, cats and rabbits per day.
    •    An affordable vaccination and microchip clinic held on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
    •    Dog daycare, which will be available in February.
    •    A new Education and Training Center that will hold a series of seminars and training classes.
    •    A new dog boarding facility.
    •    The Shelter Shop, an expanded on-site pet store with a variety of food, accessories, clothing and more for pets. All proceeds from retail sales go back to shelter programs.
    •    Ample on-site underground parking for customers.

The Pasadena Humane Society is contracted by the cities of Arcadia, Glendale, La Canada Flintridge, Pasadena, San Marino, Sierra Madre, South Pasadena and Monrovia (starting Jan. 1).

The expansion is located at 361 South Raymond Avenue in Pasadena.
