East Ridge groundbreaking

Officials with the city of East Ridge have broken ground on the future home of East Ridge Animal Services. The East Ridge Animal Shelter will be than, 4,850 -square foot facility will feature more than 30 kennels, each with self-watering features. The walls and floors of the shelter will have polymer coating to withstand pressure washing for easier cleaning. The new shelter will be larger than the current facility and allow the department to offer more services. The facility will also have room to expand as needed in the future. In addition to providing more opportunities for East Ridge’s Animal Services Department, officials hope the new facility will also help take pressure off of other animal services agencies in the area.
