With the objective of augmenting yearly adoptions and providing better services to its clientele, an expansion has been planned in the form of a separate building adjacent to the existing facilities. The new building will house the functions dealing with the public, adoptions, external clinic, classroom and administration, while the private functions, receiving, quarantine and euthanasia, will remain in the existing building.
The new building is separated into wings. The purpose is to permit daylighting and natural ventilation in the administration and clinic areas by means of an interior courtyard and a healthy contact with the exterior for the cats and dogs in the adoption areas through exercise and petting patios.
The new building is oriented on an east-west axis which offers the advantage of welcomed north daylight. Its roofs will be insulated, to conserve energy, and sloped towards the South to facilitate the installation of solar panels. The roof inclination also facilitates the installation of a rainwater catchment system that will be used for the cleaning of adoption cages.
