PG Humane Society Gears Up For Centre Opening

Saturday, February 27, 2016 @ 4:03 AM

Prince George, B.C. – The folks at the Prince George Humane Society are working diligently and local businesses are stepping up to the plate with donations to get the organization’s Adoption and Education Centre opened in March.

Society Executive Director Angela Lotze says “we’re hoping to open up mid-small humaneMarch, maybe end of March, just based on getting the renovations completed.  It’s going to be an adoption and humane education centre with two adoption rooms which are primarily for cats and the education room is where we’re going to be doing birthday parties, kids camps, humane education programs, shelter visits, anything related to humane education.”

She says visitors will be able to walk into the centre and purchase the society’s merchandise and “it will also be easier access to the public in regards to dropping off donations, doing meet and greets with animals and volunteering.”

Lotze says “we won’t be holding dogs there long-term, meaning the dogs will still remain in foster care, but people can still come during the day and view our dogs available for adoption because they will be at the facility.”

The adoption and education centre is located at 1839 First Avenue, just behind Roger’s Meats and about three doors up from Pawsitive Steps Canine Sports.

Lotze “we’re running a campaign called Raise the Woof to raise money for capital expenditures, building the rooms, completing the insulation, decorating, cat posts, all those kinds of things.  We’ve actually managed to get a couple of businesses that have already take room sponsorships, and a large majority of our supplies and services have been donated by companies within the community as well.”

“But there’s still some odds and ends obviously that we need to get done, so we’re just encouraging people, if they’re able to make cash donations they can do so by Pay Pal on our website”, which is www.pghumanesociety.ca
