Mayor Parker Visited BARC this Week!

mayor parker, news conference
Mayor Parker, along with several Council Members and others, joined us on the grounds of the new BARC adoptions building on Monday, July 13. Mayor Parker announced the progress of the construction as well as some updates on the great initiatives we have going on such as our Healthy Pets Healthy Streets targeted spay/neuter initiative and the Colorado transport program.

The new building will provide a brand new experience for our adopters! We will maintain the current facility for intake and regulatory needs, but the new adoption center will be completely dedicated to adoptions.

It was a little warm outside, but it was an amazing event! The first phase of the new Adoption Center will open in Spring 2015. Check out more pictures of the news conference at our Facebook page:
