Monterey County Animal Shelter
Monterey County asked Wald, Ruhnke & Dost Architects to recommend a site location in addition to developing the design concept for the new animal shelter in Salinas. The new shelter has a light-commercial, almost residential feel, with an inviting appearance and a courtyard layout to allow for future expansion of the kennel wing of the building.
This shelter provides top quality animal housing, meeting facilities and an attached veterinary clinic. The design addresses both practical and aesthetic requirements, and was an eagerly awaited addition to the community.
