MOHAVE COUNTY, AZ (February 7, 2023) – Approximately 120 people attended the groundbreaking for the new Mohave County Animal shelter Monday afternoon (February 6) at its location at 3629 N Burbank in Kingman.  The state-of-the-art facility is scheduled to be completed in Spring, 2024.

Shelter manager Nicole Mangiameli says it will “comfortably house over a hundred dogs and cats” in separate quarters. The new 9,000 sq. ft. indoor facility will be located on three acres. Initially, it includes a medical room to treat sick or injured animals, separate isolation rooms to abate the spread of illness, two large play areas for dogs, and a spacious lobby to accommodate visitors.

County manager Sam Elters, Mangiamelli and several county supervisors participated in the groundbreaking, along with county animal control personnel and shelter volunteers.

Lynn Kannianen, President of Friends of Mohave County Animal Shelter and veterinarian Taylor Williams spoke before the crowd of animal lovers as well.  At least six dogs were among those present, including “Baby,” the current Pet of the Week, who is also still available for adoption.

Actual construction is expected to commence in about a month.
