The city of Kingsport moved a step closer to opening its upgraded PETWORKS adoption shelter and community dog park, raising $2 million of its $3.5 million goal, the Kingsport Times-News reports. The 17,000 square foot facility will be housed on a 3.5-acre site, with an updated examination and clinical area that meets American Animal Hospital Association standards. It will feature dedicated adoption spaces with a quiet indoor adoption counseling area, a large multipurpose room for training, humane education courses, public pet training classes and a 1.2-acre dog park. Construction is expected to begin in the second half of this year, with the project to be completed in 2020.
