Abstract

"City" piece on the Animal Refuge League's 6,500-square-foot facility in Westbrook. The league's board of directors wants to build a new shelter on its 70-acre site and has hired an architect, who came up with plans for a new, 17,000-square-foot building that would cost $2.7 million. The league has hired James F. Tomney and Associates, a Cape Elizabeth consulting firm, to figure out if there's enough support in the community for the project before it moves ahead. In 1999, the refuge league took in almost 4,000 animals. Its overall euthanasia rate is currently 13 percent, compared to a national rate of 60 percent.
