CSU Animal Health Complex at the NWC

The Animal Health Complex will bring together university experts, veterinarians from around the region, clinical and therapeutic service providers, and non-profit organizations to create a space focused on various aspects of animal health, including the connection between people and animals. The facility will provide: a home for veterinarians to treat equine athletes; a space for equine-assisted therapies and activities; a clinic for companion animal care; educational facilities that inspire visitors of all ages and showcase the connection between people and animals; and short- term living spaces to support student education and other visitors to the site. The project is envisioned as an approximately 108,000 gsf building that will incorporate indoor and outdoor arenas, horse barns, clinical treatment space for small animals and horses, offices, classrooms and a mix of residential living spaces. Dumb Friends League will be a critical partner in the Animal Health Complex. Its location will be on the main thoroughfare through the National Western Center, across from the CSU Water Building, resulting in a compelling CSU footprint on the NWC campus.
