After years of planning, Peninsula animal advocates have something to look forward to as ground broke on a 40,000-square-foot San Mateo County animal shelter at Coyote Point in San Mateo Tuesday.

By July 2019, officials hope the new facility will be ready to replace the existing facility, which is more than 60 years old, on the same parcel at 12 Airport Blvd. The current facility will remain operational during construction of the new space to facilitate the transition.
