At just 7,500 square feet, the Mount Pleasant campus of the Wisconsin Humane Society is too small for the growing population of animals and services there.
So, Human Society officials are searching for a new home, a story in The Journal Times reads.
WHS spokesperson Angela Speed told the newspaper the organization houses 60 cat kennels in the main building and another 30 in a trailer outside, though that space is typically only used during warmer months. Dog spaces number 17, but those can be divided for up 34 dogs.
Doubling space to about 15,000 square feet would be ideal, the story continues.
The Ozaukee campus measures 21,000 square feet, and the flagship Milwaukee location has 40,000 square feet.
“We would love to expand animal housing, the veterinary area and administrative area,” Speed is quoted as saying.
The search is on, but the decision to purchase a building has not yet been made. WHS is open to accepting a donated building or property, Speed added.
