(NASHVILLE) – The Brown County Humane Society is planning to build a new, $3.2 million animal shelter but first, they need your help raising the needed funds.
The facility is set to be built next to the existing shelter on State Road 135.
“In addition to providing healthier and safer conditions for the shelter pets and staff, the new shelter will be built with the community in mind,” according to a press release.
The Brown County Humane Society boasts a 98 percent save rate, which it says is one of the highest in the nation. However, it says it’s outgrowing its current building which needs constant repairs.
The funding project has raised $2.6 million of the $3.2 million goal. Each donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar thanks to a grant from the Werling Charitable Foundation.
