UTICA- The Road to Home Rescue, formerly known as Lainey’s Army, has found a new home. Currently, the animal shelter is located on Oriskany Boulevard in Yorkville, but next week is relocating the dog sanctuary to East Utica on Broad Street.
“A month ago we decided we were going to move here,” said Kimberly Strong, Founder of Lainey’s Army. “It’s been kind of a rush but the time is here.”
The 11,000 square foot facility will house roughly 70 rehab dogs. The inside will have kennels, a cuddling room, a veterinarian’s office, and a 7,000 square foot training facility.
“Sometimes they are with us a few weeks, sometimes they are with us for a few months, sometimes they are here for life” said Strong. “No matter what it will be, it will not be lived in a cage.”
The facility will have a dog park in the rear of the building, where rehab dogs can be walked. Lainey’s Army is also in need of volunteers to help clean up the Broad Street property.
If you are interested in volunteering you can contact Lainey’s Army on Facebook.
