COOPERSTOWN, NY - There is some progress on the new animal shelter on Route 28 in Cooperstown. The new location of the Susquehanna SPCA is under construction next to St. Mary’s cemetery.

The new facility will be about 10,000 square feet and meet the state requirements needed to be an official animal shelter.

Susquehanna SPCA Executive Director Stacie Haynes says that the project is estimated to cost around $3,000,000, and a grant from New York State is helping them out.

"A year and a half ago we got a New York State grant for $500,000 to help us build a new facility. And so for the past year and a half we have been working on a capital project to help pay for the new facility, which will obviously cost more than $500,000. The $500,000 is incredibly helpful, so that’s where we are the demo has started and in the coming months you'll see the new building starting to go up." Haynes told NewsChannel 2.

A groundbreaking ceremony on the project is scheduled for August 24th in Cooperstown.
