PG Humane Society Opens its Doors
Prince George, B.C. – An organization focusing on animal welfare finally opens its doors at 10 a.m. today.
The Prince George Humane Society Adoption and Education Centre is located at 1839 First Avenue right behind Roger’s Meats and will provide a safe haven for abused, neglected and abandoned animals in northern, B.C.
The 2,100 square foot facility features cat adoption rooms, a 24/7 kitty cam, dog kennels, and an education room where they’ll be doing birthday parties and anything related to humane education.
250News got a sneak preview last night during a special VIP grand-opening for donors.
“The reason we created this was a lot of logistics around adoption and we wanted to make the process easier for our foster homes, for our donors, for people who want to adopt from our organization,” said executive director Angela Lotze.
“Operating solely out of foster homes has created a lot of challenges and this makes sense to put everything in one location.”
But she said the dogs will not be housed long-term at the facility.
“We just believe it’s better for them to stay in foster care. So we have two dog kennels at the back for meet and greets and to see what’s available for adoption.”
Lotze also noted the generosity of the community at large is what made the new building a reality.
“This grand-opening is just an opportunity for us to thank our donors, this would not have been possible without them.”
The executive director is no stranger to animal welfare, previously serving as manager of the North Cariboo branch of the SPCA.
She helped launch the Prince George Humane Society, a registered non-profit, last year.
