The County of Fresno hosted a ribbon-cutting to celebrate the official opening of its new animal services facility, which houses the Fresno Humane Animal Services (FHAS), Tuesday, April 26 at 1510 W. Dan Ronquillo Drive.

The new facility provides numerous benefits to both the animals and staff that were not available at the previous location in the old morgue. The current location is shy of 20,000 square feet of space that allows all the animals to be fully indoors in a climate-controlled environment. The new location has vaccine clinic capacity, an intake center, a high-capacity washer and dryer, and a mechanical dish machine for sanitizing bowls, utensils, and some toys.

Also included are large play areas as well as quarantine and isolation spaces for sick animals, mothers, and their new puppies.
