Paw Print Genetics planning to build new office, laboratory

UPDATED: Fri., March 27, 2020

Spokane-based Paw Print Genetics, a canine DNA diagnostic center, is planning to build a new office and laboratory, according to preliminary plans filed with the city.

The company filed a preliminary application with the city to build a 12,000-square-foot office and laboratory with basement storage and 60 parking spaces at 519 E. North Foothills Drive.

Construction on the $3 million project is estimated to begin this summer, according to the application.

The project architect is Spokane-based Uptic Studios.

Paw Print Genetics has an office in the Franklin Park Medical Center at 220 E. Rowan Ave.

Lisa Shaffer founded Paw Print Genetics in 2012. The company offers genetic diagnostic testing for more than 200 inherited disorders in canines, and also provides genetic testing for cats and birds.
