San Francisco SPCA Begins Building New Center

San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals start on new Leanne B. Roberts Animal Care Center.

The San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals celebrated the groundbreaking of its new Leanne B. Roberts Animal Care Center in October.

Features of the 60,000 square-foot facility will include 17 consulting and examination rooms, an in-room computer system, two surgery rooms, a main treatment complex, an intensive care ward, a surgery suite for spay/neuter operations and multiple isolation wards.

In addition, the $29.9 million center will be environmentally friendly and built with energy-efficient components. And for every tree that is used to create the facility, another tree will be planted.
The bulk of the funding came from a $13 million gift from Leanne B. Roberts, a longtime member of the San Francisco SPCA Board of Directors. A capital campaign has been launched to help raise additional money to complete construction.

The center is expected to be finished by early 2009.
