The Humane Society of Parkersburg will soon have a new home to help shelter pets from across the valley.
Wednesday evening marked the groundbreaking of the new low cost spay and neuter clinic out on 29th Street.
The humane society received more than $400,000 to get the new building started and is still looking for more financial help for it.
Phoenix Associates will be the builders of the new clinic.
This will be a way to not only shelter our four-legged friends but also put a stop to the severe pet overpopulation in Wood County and the surrounding area.
"This has been a dream for many years to be able to build this clinic. I know our staff is really excited, it revitalized them, it certainly revitalized me. We are just thrilled to be able to get this building open because we know what the results will be. It's going to be less intake and less lives loss on our end," says Humane Society of Parkersburg Executive Director, Mary Ann Hollis.
The building will be completed by the end of July.
Its grand opening is scheduled to happen between mid September and early October.
