Friends of the Animals*
Project Not Built
A budget of $3,000,000 was set for this new animal shelter for Friends of the Animals in Mooresville, NC. The organization was a private, non-profit animal welfare group seeking to provide adoption services and housing for animals in need.
This new shelter was designed to be 12,357 SF to house animals in the Mooresville/Lake Norman, NC, area until placement in a home or transfer was achieved. The shelter was designed to accommodate up to 37 dogs/puppies and up to 54 cats. The plans included a spay/neuter clinic with two surgery tables, office space for veterinary professionals, staff areas, animal care areas, food prep and laundry. In addition, it was designed to allow for future expansion to accommodate a training room for up to 64 people. This project was never built.
