The Angel Wing making progress in Canfield

Posted: Updated:

"This will be the entrance to the 24/7 Vet clinic and over there will be the waiting area."

Diane Less of Angels for Animals walks through what will be the Angel Wing, one of the largest, if not the largest center for animal care in the area. 

"Our goal is to save every adoptable animal because right now there's no space, or the resource to do that or the health care available or the equipment available or the staffing available," says Less. 

The 10 million dollar building will add another 20 staffers to their current staff of 40 including a partnership with Eastern Gateway Community College's registered vet tech program. 

Diane and the Angels for Animals team hope to have the roof up on the building by the time the snow flies and then they'll focus on the inside of the building during the Winter and early Spring.

"Now we have enough money raised for the shell and to get the 24/7 vet clinic but there are also huge holding areas for stray animals and there's also an expanded spay/neuter surgery which will let us 25,000 animals a year," adds Less. 

Less says they'll need roughly 4 million more in donations to finish the angel wing.
