As part of a progressive plan to improve the Collier County Domestic Animal Services (DAS) animal shelter, a temporary air conditioning unit will be installed in the dog adoption kennel.
Earlier this year, the existing ventilation system in the kennel was repaired and upgraded. Eight large, floor-level fans have been added to increase air circulation. In the next implementation of the shelter improvement plan, a large free-standing air conditioning unit will be installed and operational in the next few weeks.
The performance of this initial unit will allow its efficacy to be measured. The metrics will provide information that will determine if additional units will be procured.
