(Port Angeles) - The Olympic Peninsula Humane Society has paid off the land it purchased for $325,000 last year on Old Olympic Highway and is now in the planning stages on the best way to build its new facility.
The land is located at 1743 Old Olympic Highway, about 2 miles off highway 101 just east of Port Angeles. The property was paid off in less than one year. Executive Director, Mary Beth Wegener says the board of directors is in the planning stages for the new facility with a goal of moving to the property in late 2014 or early 2015.
The Olympic Peninsula Humane Society has maintained an active presence in the community since 1947. The Society shelters and cares for animals of all types, and as a private, non-profit corporation, the Society is financed primarily by private donations and gifts. No animals are turned away and annually approximately 2,000 animals pass through the doors of the facility.
