The Bond County Humane Society has received a $60,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to support the construction of a new cat shelter and office building on South Elm Street in Greenville.
The grant will go towards the humane society’s capital campaign goal of $110,000 for the new building. Plans call for the new facility to be built next to the humane society’s existing dog shelter. Officials say it will result in reduced operational expenses, better volunteer coordination, and the ability to help more animals in need.
Last year, the Bond County Humane Society rescued 162 dogs and cats. 441 animals were spayed or neutered through the humane society.
