rfa is currently working with the City of Quincy in Massachusetts on the development of the new Quincy Animal Shelter. The 14,900 square-foot shelter design not only includes housing and adoption facilities for lost and/or abandoned dogs and cats as well as exercise yards but also will include public spaces for humane education, training and obedience classes, public meetings, and K-9 Unit demonstrations. Indeed, there are designated areas for the Quincy Animal Control Unit and the Quincy K-9 Police Unit. Veterinary medical spaces include a treatment area, a surgery prep room, and a spay/neuter clinic. The building itself is nestled into a hillside in order to save on site costs, and construction is expected to begin in September of 2022. Adjacent to the future shelter's location is the recently completed dog park and its access road. This park incorporates an active dog area as well as areas for senior and small dogs.
