The Bond County Humane society broke ground Wednesday morning for construction of an addition to its building at 2510 South Elm Street in Greenville.
The first phase of the project will be to erect the building shell. The inside will be finished as funds become available.
Dennis Hundsdorfer, representing the society, said it was a big day for the humane society. He said the society has rescued and re-homed nearly 2,000 animals over the humane society’s 14 year history. He said this new project marks a new page for the organization.
