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.
