PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- The Camden County Animal Shelter has a new name and a million dollar renovation. And the staff there hopes you'll come check it out.

Homeward Bound Pet Adoption Center in Blackwood has more space to hold available cats and dogs. Executive director Vicki Rowland says there's also a new vet center on-site for basic but necessary procedures.

"We offer low cost spay/neuter services for cats and dogs and vaccinations," Rowlnad explained, "as well as preventative care such as flea treatments, blood work and those types of things."

Rowland says this has been years in the making and she loves the results.

"The whole purpose is to drive the mission of saving lives," she said, and it's very exciting to see it all come together."

About 5,000 animals pass through the shelter every year. Rowland hopes you'll drop by and check out the furry friends looking for forever homes.
