Incorporating some of the best animal housing techniques from state-of-the-art shelters across the country, the SPCA Curtis Dail Pet Adoption Center was designed to enhance the image of all shelter animals. This adoption-only, limited-admission facility displays pets in a retail-friendly way through glass walls in spacious rooms.

The shelter is designed to be people-friendly and the fact that it is a no-kill facility attracts people in to adopt because it makes them less fearful of being in an animal shelter.

Once in the SPCA Pet Adoption Center, visitor's false ideas about animal shelters and shelter animals are dispelled and they discover what great animals rescued pets are, helping this segment of the public be more inclined to have a positive image of all shelter animals.
