A recently launched campaign gives the public an opportunity to contribute to the cityâ€™s animal care facility.
The city of Tyler announced Thursday that the campaign is to raise funds for the development of â€śget acquainted roomsâ€ť and â€śadoption display areasâ€ť at the new facility.
According to a news release, donations will be made via the Crowdfunding source, Citizinvestor.
The campaign already has kicked off with a generous $25,000 donation that will fund the animal care facility lobby, according to a news release.
The animal care facility will be at 4218 Chandler Highway on a property that includes 10 acres as well as existing buildings. The facility will be able to accommodate at least 75 dogs and 50 cats, according to a news release.
â€śWe have been working towards Tyler maintaining its own animal care facility for several years, and we are very pleased to progress to this next step in making that happen,â€ť City Manager Mark McDaniel said.
Donations, which are tax deductible, can be made at www.citizinvestor.com/
facility. All proceeds will be used for the development and eventual opening of the animal care facility.
