Tri-City Animal Control Authority Looks for Land to Build New Facility

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, WA - The Tri-City Animal Control Authority is looking for a place to build a new facility with an office and animal shelter. 

ACA, which consists of the cities of Richland, Pasco and Kennewick, is looking for 3 to 5 acres of land. The current shelter was built back in the early 1970s, remodeled in the 1990s, and purchased by the City of Pasco from the Humane Society back in 2001. 

Given the growth in the Tri-Cities community, the City of Pasco says the ACA has outgrown its current facility. The city says the shelter's condition is also deteriorating due to age, making renovating or repairing the current facility too expensive. 

The city says the new shelter location must be within Richland, Pasco or Kennewick, and preferably as convenient as possible to the intercity "loop" highway (Interstate 182, US 395, State Route 240). 

The city of Pasco will accept proposals until January 3, 2014.  

Proposals should be submitted to Sandy Kenworthy, City of Pasco, 525 North 3rd Street, Pasco, Washington, 99301.

Any questions should be referred to Rick Terway, Director of Administrative and Community Services, City of Pasco, at (509) 543-5757 or email terwayr@pasco-wa.gov. 

A copy of the request for proposals can be found on the City of Pasco's web site at www.pasco-wa.gov/TCACproposal.
