Danbury zoners approve application for new animal control facility

The Danbury Zoning Commission has approved an application to add the use of "municipal animal control facility" to a certain area of the City.

 

$950,000 in bond money was approved by residents in November for construction of a new dog pound, which will help Danbury be in compliance with state standards.

 

Animal Control officials say a new facility is desperately needed. Several improvements were made to the City's current building to bring it up to date with state regulations, but the facility is still sub-standard to pounds of today. The building was constructed in the early 70's, is antiquated and in need of many major updates. 

 

The current facility doesn't have heat or air conditioning, and there's no room to quarantine animals if they're sick. A new building will give the City a humane area to hold dogs before they're adopted.
