Groundbreaking of New SPCA in Elizabeth City NC

Many hands were available to dig in at the ground breaking ceremony for the new SPCA facility. The future shelter will be just south of the junction of Pitts Chapel and Weeksville roads, in a building the SPCA acquired from Phillip Harrington Enterprises in September 2011. The future location, which has approximately 6,000 square feet of space, will be at least three times larger than the current one. Funding has come from donations, a U.S. Department of Agriculture grant and a long-term, low-interest USDA loan.
