The Harker Heights Police Department will show off the city’s newest facility, the Pet Adoption Center at 9 A. M. today on the corner of Indian Trail and Clore Road.

After months of construction and years of planning, the city is inviting the public to come tour its new Pet Adoption Center, a facility that will take the place of the city’s animal shelter on Harley Drive.

The new facility is roughly six times the size of the old facility and it houses 31 dog kennels and more than 40 cat cages.

The facility is designed to help adopt animals, Police Chief Mike Gentry and during its construction.

It will have a meeting room for those adopting pets, a window where patrons can view several cats, a meeting room for the animal advisory board and more.

Gentry and Harker Heights Mayor Ed Mullen are expected to speak before the tour at 9 A. M.

The pet supply drive conducted by Harker Heights Parks and Recreation for the Pet Adoption Center will also be presented to animal control at that time.

The facility is located at 401 Indian Trail but the public entrance to the facility is located on Clore Road.

While the facility’s grand opening is today, the city probably won’t be operating out of the facility for another 30 days, Gentry said Tuesday.
