With its groundbreaking earlier this week, the new Jessamine County Animal Shelter on Park Drive in Nicholasville is a year away from completion.
The 9,000-square-foot building, which will be behind the current animal shelter, will include public holding areas for dogs, cats and other animals that have been vaccinated and have been evaluated as "adoptable." Non-public areas in the shelter will house animals that are awaiting evaluation, and animals that have been evaluated as vicious or diseased.
