Valdosta - The new Valdosta-Lowndes Humane Society is officially open for business. "It's well located, it's nice and big," said Cheryl Hatcher, Humane Society President.
Business has moved from inside members' homes and cars to a newly renovated building on East Jane Street. "The building was donated for two years by Don Brotherton," said Hatcher.
Inside you'll find animal playrooms, a conference room where classes will be offered, and plenty of much needed storage space. All of this work was done by volunteers. "We had people from Moody, people from he community we didn't even know, this has all been volunteer labor," said Hatcher.
The new building will allow the humane society to have all their resources in one location, and help animals find a safe and loving home. "We can have foster events here, we now have a place to meet people with the pets, and now we have someone who's answering the phones all the time," said Hatcher.
Because they've never have an office, Hatcher says most people didn't even know Valdosta had a humane society. But the new building is already attracting visitors. Several people have noticed the signs outside and stopped in to ask about adopting a pet. "We have a whole litter of puppies that we've been bottle feeding and we have lots of different kinds of cats," said Hatcher.
Lots of animals needing lots of good homes, and hopefully, their new building will make that happen.
