New Wellington Humane Society set for ground-breaking in 2018
The new location for the Wellington Humane Society hopes to have ground-breaking started by next April, reports Debbie Woodrow, President of the Humane Society. The architect has already designed the building, which will be located on a 3-acre property at the northwest corner of Hillside and Clark in Wellington.
Until then, the animals currently up for adoption reside at the Pearly Gates Ranch, southeast of Wellington. Five cats are currently up for adoption. Max is a black cat with copper eyes; Petey is a four year old female that has been spayed and declawed, but does need vaccinated; Bella loves being pet and getting catnip; Jag is a lover and a talker.
There are only two dogs left for adoption. Luigi is a 1-2 year old Shar-pei mix, while Cocoa is a 1-2 year old border collie. Luigi and Cocoa have already been neutered. Both dogs were homeless after the Houston hurricane earlier this year and were transported up to Wichita.
Currently, they can accept strays picked up out in the county.
At least ten volunteers come out from the surrounding area to help at the facility. They clean cages, change the cat litter, and replenish the food and water. Volunteers are always welcome. To set up a time, contact Vice President Phyllis Todd at 620-399-8552.
Todd says she “would like to get all of the animals adopted by Christmas.” The society is “always looking for donors. Any financial donations are tax deductible.” She also encourages people to use the Community Awards section of their Dillons Rewards cards to donate to the Sumner County Humane Society. Their help is very much appreciated.
