The Racine campus of the Wisconsin Humane Society could be moving into new digs now that they have an offer to purchase land at the corner of 16th and 90th Streets in Mount Pleasant

WHS spokesperson Angela Speed confirmed via email that the organization has an accepted offer to purchase but not a firm construction timeline or final building plans.

“We indeed have an accepted offer of land and we’re working with contractors on building plans at this point,” she wrote. “We don’t have final costs or a timeline yet, as we’re still working on the basics.”

The current facility on Chicory Road measures around 7,500 square feet, and the new building is expected to be double that. While WHS has worked on improving the current space, the number of animals they care for – especially cats and sick animals – dictates the need for a larger building.

“We’ve been in Racine for three years now and have a good understanding of the community needs,” Speed’s email continues. “As much as we’ve made improvements to the current facility, it still lacks appropriate housing for the number of animals we care for, isolation space for sick animals, modern veterinary space and administrative offices.”

Wisconsin Humane Society took over from Countryside Humane Society in 2012.
