Former Midland SPCA to be Remodeled Into New Shelter

MIDLAND, TX (Big 2 News) -- The Midland SPCA closed its doors in 2013, moving all its animals to a shelter in Fort Davis. That shelter, Grand Companions, is now working to open an innovative new shelter in place of the old Midland SPCA.

The non-profit is working to turn the old Midland SPCA along SCR 1206 into its first "sweet suite shelter satellite."

Grand Companions was founded in 1989 and mains its headquarter in Fort Davis. In its main sweet suite shelter there are no dog runs, kennels or cages. Instead the environment is more like a home, with the animals spending time with a staff member throughout the day.

The organization says it's now fundraising to remodel the old SPCA facility into its sweet suite shelter style. We're told the remodeling project will cost about $150,000.

Grand Companions tells us they hope to have their first satellite shelter open by Spring of 2015.

The non-profit's number one goal is eliminating needless euthanasia. And organizers say their main focus is finding people the right pet.
