Land sought for new animal shelter, office

By the Tri-City HeraldDecember 10, 2013 

The Tri-City Animal Control Authority, which serves Richland, Pasco and Kennewick, is looking for three to five acres to build a new office and shelter.

The current facility, which was purchased by Pasco in 2001 from the Benton Franklin Humane Society, was built in the early 1970s and remodeled in the 1990s.

The shelter has outgrown the Pasco facility, which is need of another remodel that the control board feels is too costly.

The new shelter must be within the Tri-Cities and preferably near connections to highways 395 and 240 as well as Interstate 182.

For more information, call Rick Terway at 509-543-5757 or email
