Layout of our Animal Resource Center

Pardon our dust!


We have submitted plans to the county to increase our shelter’s footprint from 22,970 square feet to 149,900 within the next three to four years. This will significantly increase our current capacity and allow us to save even more animals!

Currently being constructed is our new Animal Resource Center. This will include a lobby where we will be able to process new animal intakes, quarantine rooms for sick animals, and a surgery suite for our medical team. 


Future phases will include an education center and renovations to our existing adoption building.

Construction of our Animal Resource Center

The SPCA's Board of Directors determined in 2018 that the infrastructure of the shelter required updating. Also, it became apparent to the Board that anticipated growth at the West Bradenton location would require enlarging the facilities to accommodate the growth of the West Bradenton animal population. The new facilities envisioned by the Board will include several naming opportunities for potential donors


In the event you would care to participate in these efforts in a naming opportunity or otherwise, please contact Mr. Keith Pratt, Executive Director of Bishop Animal Shelter, at Keith@BishopSPCA.org. 


On behalf of our Board of Directors and, most importantly, on behalf of the animals, we invite you to join us in this exciting and important lifesaving process.
