San Francisco Animal Care & Control Facility

Photographer: Jason O'Rear

Originally constructed in 1893, the historic three-story, brick structure was repurposed to house a new, 65,000 square-foot animal care and control facility. The modern facility contains an animal hospital featuring specialty clinic and emergency room surgical space, x-ray, and infirmary isolation functions. The project also includes an adoption center, expanded play and training areas for all animals and large education spaces to serve the public, animal care staff and volunteers.

Built to meet current seismic-safety standards, the building will be able to continue emergency operations after a major earthquake, even if power and water are temporarily interrupted.
