Posted by on Sep 27, 2012 in News | 0 comments

As the only facility of its kind in the nation, Georgia’s new State Animal Facility for Emergencies (SAFE) Center provides shelter to animals during natural & manmade disasters — and it is now ready for occupancy if activated! The 7,800 sq.ft. facility can hold up to 80 cats, 105 dogs and 30 horses, plus a fenced pasture to accommodate other animals. Fort Valley State University was selected for the SAFE location because it is centrally located near interstates and offers an on-site School of Veterinary Medicine.
