LEE COUNTY, Fla.-- The Animal Refuge Center's new adoption center is officially open in North Fort Myers.

The center celebrated its 30th birthday Saturday with the adoption center's grand opening.

It's called The Brighter Beginnings Adoption Center and it's the first and last place guests visit when they go to the shelter. 

“The Brighter Beginnings Adoption Center is such a wonderful addition to our facility,” ARC Board President Rob Spicker says.  “It completely changes the experience our guests have when they come meet and adopt one of our cats or dogs.”

The new 2,400 square foot building was built with the donations from Animal Refuge Center's sponsors. The board president says the shelter houses about 500 cats and dogs a year. 

The Brighter Beginnings Adoption Center was built thanks to the generous donations of the Animal Refuge Center's many sponsors.
