The event was hosted in conjunction with Monticello Motor Club and Art In Motion Concours d’Elegance, who are collectively responsible for the $25,000 donation that allowed the SPCA to complete the project.
The new building, welcomed with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony, will function as a quarantined space for sick animals undergoing treatment, while keeping healthy animals at the main shelter protected from incoming disease.
“We don’t know what these poor animals have been exposed to before they come into our care,” SPCA Shelter Manager Debbie Dittert said. “By having a place to assess and treat these animals outside of the main kennel area, we can literally save lives.”
“The donation from MMC and AIM is the largest single donation we’ve ever received, and we are so grateful,” she added.
