Grand Opening For New Animal Care Facility Scheduled This Weekend

Caldwell County Animal Care Enforcement (ACE) will open its new facility with a dedication ceremony this Saturday, January 21 beginning at 10 a.m. Animal Care Enforcement Director Richard Gilliland said in a news release, “This new facility gives us space for more animals, a place for cats to safely play, much needed office space and more.”

During the opening, attendees will have the opportunity to tour the facility, which features indoor/outdoor kennels, open “community” rooms for cats, get-acquainted rooms, and a grooming room. Hart’s General Store and Creamery will be on site with coffee and treats and the first 100 guests will receive an ACE T-shirt.

Parking for the event will be at the Caldwell County Health and Human Services Building, 2345 Morganton Boulevard. A shuttle will transport attendees to the facility site. Guests are asked not to bring their pets to the event and to note that ACE will not be doing adoptions during the grand opening.

To give staff time to move into the new building, the current ACE facility, located on Fairview Drive in Lenoir, is closed this week (January 16-20). ACE will reopen in its new location next Monday, January 23.
