You may have noticed the construction going on at the old Baxter Shelter on Stroudwater Street, and we are on our way to expanding programming for people and pets.
As we grow our campus, we will have the ability to increase our programs. Baxter will serve as a flex space for providing community-based programming and services. We’ve been at the Arthur P. Girard Adoption center since 2017 and the training and behavior space is at capacity. Based on requests for service, we know the need is great for more access to training.
We also want to utilize Baxter for facilities and storage as well as quarantine and overflow holding space for large seizures and disaster relief efforts.
The Baxter renovations are set to wrap up in the fall, pending the arrival of all materials and finishes.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to the City of Westbrook, Ryan Senatore Architecture, Optimum Construction, Atlantic Resource Consultants, and Cordjia for helping us turn our visions of the Baxter Shelter into a reality.
