PHOENIX — A $22 million shelter for at-risk animals has opened in Phoenix.

Heidi’s Village, located near 40th and Van Buren streets, opened its nine-building campus in April.

The facility features a veterinary clinic, an adoption services building and other administrative buildings in addition to the shelter.

Heidi’s Village partners with about 100 other shelters and rescue organizations in Maricopa County to provide temporary boarding for dogs and cats when availability at those spots is limited.

The 48,000-square-foot shelter can hold up to 250 dogs and 200 cats, according to a press release.

The shelter also has a nursery for orphan kittens who need to be bottle-fed and kept warm throughout the day.

Services offered at the shelter include medical intervention, grooming and behavioral modification.

Once animals are medically and behaviorally cleared, they are available for adoption.

To volunteer or learn more about the facility, visit the website.

We want to hear from you.
