Angel’s Wish, an all-volunteer non-profit organization for cats and kittens, has begun construction on an expansion of its pet adoption and resource center in Verona.
The organization will bring together new and existing spaces for a 3,000 square foot expansion that will “create better experiences for cats and the people who love them,” a May 24 press release said.
The expansion will double the organization’s footprint in the business condo complex at 161 Horizon Drive in Verona. When completed, the facility will include a dedicated medical room, more visitation rooms for potential adopters to meet adoptable cats, more cat condos, a dedicated room for nail trimming and microchipping services, a training for workshops and volunteer orientations, and more, according to the press release.
Construction began in April and is expected to take around six months.
An unexpected monetary gift from a donor’s estate arrived just as the condominium units adjoining Angel’s Wish were available for sale.
The donation covered the cost of purchasing the condominium units, but community support is needed to complete construction, the press release said. Angel’s Wish hopes to raise at least $150,000 to help cover construction costs.
Opportunities to name rooms in the expanded facility are available. Donors can honor or
remember a pet, person or family, or even include their business or organization with a personalized plaque on the door or wall of the sponsored area.
Angel’s Wish was founded in 2000 by inspired volunteers to create a community where animals were not euthanized for lack of boarding space. They have gone from primarily helping animals in Dane County to now helping vulnerable cats throughout south-central Wisconsin and beyond. Angel’s Wish is an all-volunteer non-profit charity organization
More than ten thousand cats and kittens have found new homes through the organization, according to the press release.
