The City of Keller is hosting an open house to give residents a sneak peek of the $8.6 million renovation and expansion of the Regional Jail and Regional Animal Adoption Center on Saturday, February 22, from 2:00p.m. to 4:00p.m. at the Keller Police Department Headquarters, located at 330 Rufe Snow Drive.
This 21,000 square foot facility will enhance the animal shelter and jail capacities and services that partner cities Southlake, Keller, Colleyville, and Westlake utilize. This expansion follows the merger of Colleyville, Keller, Southlake and Westlake’s Animal Services operations on Oct. 1, 2012. The cities of Southlake and Keller partnered on jailing efforts in 2007 after approving Tarrant County’s first merger of emergency dispatch services.
The adoption center will be managed by the employees of the Humane Society of North Texas and will not euthanize adoptable animals or for extra space. The expansion offers about four times the current capacity for dogs and doubles the capacity for cats. It includes a 1,700-square-foot dog courtyard, a medical area for minor surgical procedures, a larger adoption and socialization area, and room to expand the center’s volunteer program.
This open house will be the only opportunity for the public to tour the inside of the new jail facility, as it will not be open to the public after operations begin. Renovations to the regional holding facility more than tripled the number of cells, offers additional security for employees and short-term detainees, upgraded technology and even provides a kiosk at which family members and friends will be able to pay detainees’ bonds.
For more information about this facility, please contact the Keller Police Department at 817-743-4500.
