DETROIT (AP) - The Michigan Humane Society says it is launching a campaign to raise money toward the construction of an animal care center in Detroit.

The new facility would be just blocks away from the group’s current Detroit shelter.

The Humane Society said Friday it will cost $15.5 million to build the 34,000-square-foot facility.

The future MHS Detroit Animal Care Campus would offer improved animal housing, an expanded veterinary center, a new home for the Cruelty Investigation and Rescue Department, dog and cat rehabilitation areas and a community dog park.

Excavation at the site has begun. The Michigan Humane Society plans to complete the project by early 2016.

MHS moved into its current Detroit shelter in the 1920s.
