All Kind Animal Initiative (a non-profit pro-animal group) was founded in Abilene over a year ago to assist the City of Abilene in acquiring the land and building the new Pet Adoption and Resource Center (PARC) aka the animal shelter.

Originally, the All Kind Animal Initiative was working to assist the city in making Abilene's Animal Shelter a no-kill shelter as well. However, Andrea Robison, one of the founders of AKAI said "once we began working in the animal shelter we realized how small and old the shelter is. So, we've decided to do a little more and help the City of Abilene build a new, bigger, and better adoption center."

The Abilene animal shelter was built in the 1950s as a "Dog Pound" and has had very few updates since then. The goal of "All Kind Animal Initiative" is to have a place where the animals are well cared for, easy to adopt, and a facility that is a totally no-kill center.

The new facility will be called the "Pet Adoption and Resource Center." It will be built on East South 11th Street next to Lytle Creek. The clean-up, remodel, or build has not yet begun however, Andrea says "we are very excited that 'All Kind Animal Initiative' has acquired the land thanks to the City of Abilene where the new shelter will be built. We are hopeful that we could break ground before the end of this year."
