New animal shelter nears completion

Humane Society honors volunteers who played a key role in building the $1 million, 7,000-square-foot facility

Heaving a sigh of relief at the wagging tail end of a mild winter, the Humane Society of Central Arizona has nearly finished its new, 7,000-square-foot animal shelter on South McLane Road. Animal lovers fretted about a final winter for aging, open-air kennels bulging with abandoned dogs, but the lack of winter storms that frustrated water managers delighted the Humane Society. So now the group has turned to putting the final touches on an enclosed, temperature controlled shelter with separate kennels and treatment options for sick animals, hoping to move about 50 dogs into the new digs in March or April.
