Dogs Dig It


Decatur – It’s the cat’s meow and dogs dig it.  The Humane Society of Decatur & Macon County has opened its new shelter at 3373 N. Woodford Street in Decatur.

“It’s huge,” Humane Society President Irene Peterson told WAND’s Doug Wolfe.  “5,340 square foot.  Our animals need more space.  They need more exercise.”

Money for the shelter came from donations and money passing down from estates.  The shelter still needs another $35,000 and is seeking donations.  Those donations are tax deductible.

“It’s nice to be able to let the animals get out and stretch their legs and have a higher quality of life with more room, more space.”

Saturday an open house will be held.  It runs from 10am – 2pm.  Tours of the facility are available to the public at that time.
