The Florence Area Humane Society will soon break ground on it’s long-awaited ‘no kill’ animal shelter.
The new facility will relieve overcrowding at it’s present one. At one time, officials say they were putting down at least 1,000 animals a year because of crowded conditions.
The new 6,500 square foot building will have 50 indoor/outdoor kennels, a quarantine area for sick dogs, and a much larger clinic area for sick dogs, and a much larger clinic area than the current facility.
There will be a separate area for cats and kittens, even a maternity ward.
Groundbreaking is set for Thursday, December 17th.
