Around Texas

January, 2010

The Rees-Jones Foundation has pledged up to $4 million to build a new animal shelter, clinic and adoption center in Dallas.

Details were announced Tuesday by the SPCA of Texas.

The pledge for the 39,000-square-foot facility will kick off the final phase of the group's $15 million capital campaign to build the new complex.

The planned shelter will replace the Dealey Animal Care Center, built in 1974 near downtown Dallas. The new larger facility will be in the Oak Cliff neighborhood.
