Bradley County SPCA starts capital campaign for a new facility-here’s how to help

BRADLEY COUNTY, Tenn (WDEF) – The SPCA of Bradley County and the Community Foundation of Cleveland and Bradley County are asking for the public’s help with funding a new facility. 

The current facility is far past its capacity, with size restrictions limiting the number of adoptions the SPCA can facilitate. 

Currently, over 60 animals are in foster care due to a lack of space and kennels available.

The current facility was not designed for animal care, meaning that the facility as it stands lacks both sanitary and procedural necessities to ensure the well-being of our community’s animals.

“I think we are just capped on the volume and quality of care that we can give in our current facility and the infrastructure around here. They are doing the best they can with the resources they have but what we really need is just more capacity,” says Ben Chandler, Vice Chairman of the Community Foundation.

The new facility is estimated to cost $1.5 million and be 10,000 sq feet. For more information on how you can help out our furry friends click here.
