Lagoa is finally moving forward with plans to completely renovate its municipal kennels. The works will involve demolishing the existing kennels and building everything from the ground up.

Last year, a project to turn the kennels into an “official centre for the capture of stray animals” (Centro Oficial de Recolha de Animais Errantes) was announced by the local council. But a report from the national board of administration and finances (DGAF) forced the council to make some changes to the project so that it could receive the green light it needed.
