Humane Society starts "public" campaign for new shelter

(PORT ANGELES) – The Olympic Peninsula Humane Society is closer to building on a new home, between Port Angeles and Sequim along the Old Olympic Highway.
The new facility will sit on nine and a half acres. Humane Society officials say is will improve the shelter's capacity to house animals that need a permanent home.
Executive Director, Mary Beth Wegener, says that although they are close to breaking ground, additional funds are still needed to start the building process for the new dog kennels.
The ''Dig Deep'' campaign is now underway to provide the additional funds needed to help build the new facility.
The group already raised about $600,000 in a "silent" campaign. It now needs about $400,000 more to pay for the new facility.
Wegener says the project will likely take about 8 months to complete once the funding is in place. She projects that by March 2015, the facility should be up and running.
