Dogs and cats are expected to have a better, quieter stay at DuPage County’s Animal Care and Control facility after a roughly $930,000 renovation of the building.

County board member Brian Krajewski, chairman of the county board’s animal care and control committee, said it was important to do the project now because the building was constructed in 1977. “We’ve learned a lot more about the care of animals since 1977,” he said.
