Our Facility - Past, Present and Future
Misty Eyes Animal Center was founded in 2011. Since founding we have had the goal of building a state of the art facility that will house homeless animals and an educational space that will be used to teach responsible pet ownership and kindness toward all living things. We are a 100% volunteer run organization and rely on private donations, grants, fundraisers and community support. Until construction is complete all animals live in foster homes. Misty Eyes is currently raising funds for both animal operations and our building fund. We need your support, please consider making a donation or joining our fundraising team. Thank you.
Phase One, Complete
Through the generous donation of Tom Scoggins Design, the oversight of Scott Butrum and our amazing volunteers Misty Eyes was able to complete phase one.
- Administrative Building (this building will be used as our adoption center until the remaining buildings are completed)
- The gallery below shows what the building looked like when we purchased it and the progress we have made.
Phase Two, Kitty City
Kitty City is the next building that will be built on the Misty Eyes campus. This building will have the capacity to house 50 cats. It will also have a protected outdoor area for cats and kittens to enjoy the fresh air. Inside you will find a laundry room, food prep area, medical exam room, quarantine room and maternity area.
Phase Three, Canine Country
Canine Country will be built and connected to Kitty City. You will never see dogs in cages or kennels at Misty Eyes Animal Center, instead you will see them sharing comfy suites. This building will have the capacity to hold 50 dogs. It will also house a storage area, laundry room, food prep area, medical exam room, meet and greet area, quarantine room and maternity area.
Phase Four, Real Life Building & Education Hall
The real life building will provide a hands on training experience for our dogs. Many of our dogs have never been in a home or have spent very little time in one. They are often scared of certain surfaces and lack house manners. This building will provide a variety of different experiences that will help train our great dogs. The education hall will feature an open training room, classroom, small auditorium, and library. We will offer year round programs for students. We will use this area to continue our mission of teaching responsible pet ownership and kindness toward all.
Phase Five, Tranquilty Gardens
The final phase of our plan is an outdoor area known as our tranquilty gardens. This will be located toward the west end of our property and feature lovely walking paths, trees, benches and bird feeders. It will be available for volunteers to walk our current adoptable pets. It will also have open hours available to previous adopters only.
