Update:

On Monday, animals were moved into the Doddridge County Humane Society's new building.

One dog and 10 cats were brought to the shelter and are now up for adoption.

Three more cats are also expected to be brought in soon.

For the director of the Humane Society, it's a happy day.

"I've put eight years into trying to get a shelter open so this means more than I can really say. I'm thrilled that we're finally able to take care of all these animals that have been strays, or abused, or neglected," said Betty Curtis, Director of the Humane Society.

All of the animals are now officially up for adoption and looking for a good home.

You can contact the Doddridge County Humane Society at 304-782-4900.


Original story:

The Doddridge County Humane Society officially moved into its new building Friday, Oct. 18.

Located on Wiseman Run Road in Doddridge County, the humane society will be able to house 20 dogs and 25 cats.

The new building includes separate rooms for the dogs, cats, and kittens and a special room for people to meet their potential pets.

The Director of the Humane Society said the animals the society will take in are in need of good homes.

"There are so many cats and dogs that are unwanted and strays and they need a place. A lot of them will make good pets, and that's why we are trying to do our best," said Betty Curtis, of the Doddridge County Humane Society.

Friday visitors got to tour the new facility, enjoy some refreshments, and meet the employees of the shelter.

Funding for the new building came partially from a $250,000 inheritance.

The Humane Society is always looking for volunteers.

Volunteers perform tasks like upkeep of the facility, walking dogs, animal feeding, and cleaning kennels.

The animals will be moved into the shelter on Monday.
