Livingston County Dog Control will hold an open house on April 13

GENESEO – Livingston County Dog Control invites the general public to tour its new pet admissions facility at an open house April 13, 2-6 p.m. at 3386 Gypsy Lane in Mt. Morris.

The recently completed 850 square foot building was made possible by a $112,500 grant from the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets, which helped fund pet shelter upgrades throughout the state. The new building includes an enclosed garage attached to a kennel and a temperature-controlled grooming area, which will improve operations at the county-owned facility, said Livingston County environmental health director Mark Grove.

“The garage allows a vehicle to unload dogs into a secure space, which is sometimes essential for safely transferring dogs to adjacent kennel areas,” Grove explained. “The new kennel area is intentionally separated from the main 2,700 square foot kennel building so that dogs with a potentially contagious medical condition can be isolated and assessed before being exposed to other dogs. In addition to increasing the capacity of the kennel, the new building also has space and equipment for dog grooming that it previously lacked.

Livingston County Central Services staff did the majority of the construction for the $150,000 project. Their staff salary costs were allocated to the full matching funds of $37,500 required as part of the grant criteria.
