ENDICOTT (WBNG) -- A long-time animal rescue has moved into a new location.

Dozens of meows can now be heard at Dickin Memorial Animal Hospital; Every Cat’s Dream’s newest location.

“We moved out of the Petco store to open this smaller adoption center,” said Adoption Center Manager Tammy Peters. “So, we can better focus on TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) and better focus on adopting out more healthy animals in our general area rather than focusing on the corporate side of what was becoming animal rescue.”

Peters said the new space is smaller than the team and cats are use to, but with the new location comes new changes.

“We’re going with a few cages rather than having our large rooms like we had, but we do have the nice open windows, we’re right on Main Street, the cats are so entertained already, our office cat is happier than she’s ever been. So, it’s going to be a little bit different, but we’re still focusing on foster homes, we’re still focusing on keeping the cats healthy, happy and finding them their forever homes,” she said.

Along with adoptions, the new locations will serve the the community multiple ways, including a retail store for all-things-cats, each cat will receive a wellness check from Dickin Memorial, and a focus on TNR.

“Now we’ll be able to take a step back and really focus on the cats in this area,” Peters said. “TNR is such a huge thing in this area. We work very closely with Dr. Beaulieu here at Dicken Memorial on our TNR projects and this is just going to allow us to focus a little more on those important things rather than being in the public eye like we had kind of become at Petco.”

However, despite these changes, the rescue’s key focus remains the same.

“It’s really going to be no different. It’s just going to be a little bit more personable, little bit more smaller scale, and we’ll just be able to focus a little bit more on helping people find the right cat.”

The new rescue center is located at 2001 E. Main St. in Endicott at Dickin Memorial Animal Hospital.

As of right now, hours of operation will be weekday from 1 P.M. to 6 P.M.
