Cats comfy cozy in all-new Glenville shelter space

GLENVILLE - Adopting a pet is a fun and exciting experience, but historically, animal shelters haven't always been the most fun and exciting places. In many cases, they were downright depressing.

Times change and now, places like the Animal Protective Foundation in Glenville continue to make shelters a happier, healthier place for those adopting - and being adopted.


The Delack Feline Care Center is the result of a $400,000 expansion and improvement project. It includes sound barriers to keep barking from nearby dogs at bay. That keeps the cats less stressed.

In addition, they've also implemented more cage-free adoption areas, so kitties meet prospective families in their "cabanas". That helps their true personalities shine through.

Add increased natural lighting, plus a ventilation system that helps reduce the spread of contagious diseases - and any unsavory scents - and you've got a space that's just better for everyone.

Check out the new space by watching the video of Jerry Gretzinger's story.
