Area Humane Society Ready to Open New Animal Clinic

The Pasadena Humane Society announced it will open a new $20 million facility with a spay and neuter clinic, a larger training center, dog daycare and boarding.

The Pasadena Humane Society, which serves Monrovia,  announced Thursday it will open the doors to Animal Care Center's Wellness Clinic -- a $20 million new facility with a spay and neuter clinic, a larger training center, dog daycare and boarding -- later this month.

The new facility, which will open Jan. 30, is an addition to the Pasadena Humane Society's existing campus at  361 South Raymond Ave. in Pasadena.

"It's a very exciting time," said Steven R. McNall, president and CEO of the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA."We're focusing on expanded programs to help stop the tragedy of pet overpopulation. The Animal Care Center is a proactive approach to keep animals in their homes and out of the shelter."

An expanded spay and neuter clinic, which will be open Tuesday through Saturday, will allow veterinarians to perform 20 surgeries on dogs, cats and rabbits daily, according to Ricky Whitman, a spokesperson for the Pasadena Humane Society.

"We want to reduce and actually end euthanasia of adoptable animals and we want to keep animals out of shelters," Whitman said. "So come on down and see us."

Other features include an affordable vaccination and microchip clinic, a new education and training center, dog daycare, a new dog boarding facility, and a pet store. There is also new underground parking.

The expansion project began last June. PHS is contracted by Monrovia and the cities of Arcadia, Glendale, La Canada Flintridge, Pasadena, San Marino, Sierra Madre and South Pasadena for animal control duties.

For more information, officials ask guests visit the Humane Society's website.
