Sick and homeless animals from throughout the Inland Valley now have a brand new home away from home.
Dedicated supporters and private donors such as Ruth McConnell have teamed up to raise money for the newly renovated Inland Valley Humane Society and SPCA. The result is the 12,345-square foot McConnell Pet Adoption Center. It still is at 500 Humane Way, but the structure, built in the 1950s, has a brand new face.
The community is invited to come take a look next Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. during an open house.
One person who is all smiles these days is Bill Harford, executive director and a 32-year veteran of serving with the private, nonprofit organization. The long-time animal lover and advocate started his journey in 1979 as a Riverside humane officer. He enjoyed the job and it helped him as he pursued a degree in criminal justice.
