Leash-Cutting Ceremony Re-Opens McKinney SPCA

The SPCA of Texas McKinney facility hosted it's grand reopening May 18 after completion of a more than $280,000 renovation.

The SPCA of Texas originally opened the building in McKinney in 2001 as part of its long-range facilities planning, having purchased the 32-acre property in 1997. The McKinney branch is located at 8411 Stacy Road.

The facility's upgrades, which began on February 29, include renovations of the dog kennels and puppy room, a replacement of the single cat condos on the adoption floor and the addition of a drainage system in the barn paddocks for recuperating livestock.

James Bias, the President of the SPCA of Texas, said, "These renovations significantly increase capacity to provide exceptional care to the animals at our Russell H. Perry Animal Care Center."

These renovations were made possible by a grant of $260,791 from The Moody Foundation and a grant of $25,000 from the Hillcrest Foundation.
