Every dog has it's day, and Prince George's County says that day has come. Prince George's County now has a 37,000 square foot state of the art animal care facility with 250 kennel runs to house homeless animals and give them room to exercise.

The facility has a spay and neuter clinic, a quarantine area, and a special area for exotic animals. Director of the Department of Environmental Resources Charles Wilson says they now have what he called a 'new philosophy of life' that emphasizes finding ways to save animals lives. He also promised to try harder to find the owners of lost pets, and create an adoption plan for animals at the center.
