After a year of planning and renovations, the Clark County SPCA will be opening their doors to the public in mid January. Director Krissi Hawke announced the Open House date of January 6, 2018 from 4 – 7 pm at the 21 Walter Street in Springfield. Residents of the community will be able to tour the facility and learn more about opportunities to help the organization that is ready to support local homeless cats and dogs.
The interior of the building has been transformed to allow for a kennel area, a cat play room featuring an Ohio State theme and a “reading and visiting” room complete with The Cat in the Hat himself on the wall.
The SPCA will have regular hours starting on January 15, 2018 from 12 – 3 pm Monday – Friday. Because the organization participates in offsite events each Saturday, the offices will be closed. They will also be closed on Sunday and all holidays.
Hawke noted that she will accept appointments for redemptions and adoptions in off hours as they are able to do so.
The Clark County SPCA works closely with the Clark County Dog Wardens. The organization is able to accept cats but space is limited. They host adoption events each Saturday at the PetSmart location on Bechtle Avenue in Springfield for dogs and have cats on display throughout the week at this location.
Through the fundraising efforts of Hawke and her volunteers and board members and with a generous donation from Dr. Dana and Judy King, she was able to realize her dream of a place where homeless animals could get a second chance at a forever home and also receive the medical care they often need when found as strays.
