DOTHAN, AL, August 2, 2022: Animal enthusiasts around the Wiregrass have much to celebrate with the


groundbreaking of the state-of-the-art facility, Wiregrass Pet Rescue and Adoption Center on Tuesday, August 23, 2022.


The ceremony will begin at 9:00 a.m. and will be held at the new shelter site on 52 West just outside of the Ross Clark


Circle between Ward Wilson Funeral Home and Eye Surgical Associates. The general public and their pets are invited to


attend. Parking will be available at designated neighboring businesses with shuttle transportation provided to the shelter


site for guests and their pets.


Over the past three years, intensive research, planning, and development have culminated into a facility with a variety of


features such as catios, wooded walking paths, and medical and grooming rooms. A full list of amenities can be found at


www.wiregrasspets.org. The Wiregrass Pet Rescue and Adoption Center is a 501c3 nonprofit that has partnered with


the city of Dothan and Houston County to build the shelter. WPRAC was designed to create an exemplary animal shelter


and pet adoption center, along with a community friendly facility in Dothan/Houston County, Alabama. WPRAC will


provide for the basic needs for domesticated animals (primarily cats and dogs) until they are reclaimed by their owner,


placed in a new home, or placed with another organization for adoption.


Led by local businessman, Bryan Applefield, the board of directors of the Wiregrass Pet Rescue and Adoption Center


include the following:


Bryan Applefield, President


Beth Kenward, Vice President
