MENOMONIE – The Dunn County Humane Society (DCHS) is preparing to break ground on a much-needed addition to its existing facility.
Thanks to generous donations and community support, DCHS has raised enough funds to begin building an addition for cats. Site preparation, excavation and concrete work will begin this spring.
DCHS has teamed up with another non-profit, UW-Stout’s Student Construction Association, to frame and enclose the addition, beginning in fall 2015.
The current structure was designed to house between 30 and 60 cats. The average number of cats at DCHS is 142, with as many as 200 at certain times of the year. The cat population has increased 6 percent annually for the last several years.
DCHS has raised a portion of the funds needed to complete the project. The facility greatly appreciates past donations to the building fund and will make every effort to fulfill all promises made in the past, upon completion of the addition.
