Animal Services Facility


  • This project will construct a new animal services building in Leesburg to serve as the primary location for Loudoun County Animal Services (LCAS), replacing the existing building in Waterford. 
  • The new animal services facility will be 21,450 square feet and will have kennels, indoor and outdoor spaces, a veterinary clinic, a multi-purpose room, and a split lobby for adoptions and surrenders.
  • The new facility will become the first public animal shelter in the United States to meet 100% of the animal shelter guidelines established by the Association of Shelter Veterinarians.
  • The project is estimated for completion in winter 2021.

Current Status: March 2021

  • Last month, crews completed repairs to the geothermal system and water main, which will be inspected by the Town of Leesburg in mid-March.

  • Work to finish punch list items and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing is ongoing.
  • The installation of architectural finishes is ongoing until the end of the project.
  • Anticipated substantial completion in spring 2021 at which time the building will be furnished and Loudoun County Animal Services will begin to move in.
