Humane Society Launches Capital Campaign

The Bond County Humane Society has started a capital campaign with the goal of building a cat shelter and business office on its property along South Elm Street in Greenville.

Rachel Hundsdorfer, representing the society, told WGEL the organization houses dogs in a building on South Elm Street and cats in a building on South Fourth Street.

The Fourth Street building belongs to the county and Hundsdorfer said the Humane Society has used the building longer than originally anticipated. She said the building is not energy efficient and in need of repair.

Hundsdorfer said the goal of the society is to bring animal care, adoption, volunteers and services under one roof.

She told us they have launched a capital campaign, which will include an online page and grant applications. Overall, the group needs to raise $165,000. They’re hoping $50,000 will be raised locally.

The funds will be used to create a facility to house more cats and include office space.

The humane society exists through donations, fundraisers and grants.

It recently had a state grant awarded, but it was pulled due to the financial condition of Illinois.
