BC Humane Society to Expand

Kathy Whyte/ WNBF News

The BC Humane Society is looking for help paying for a new, larger facility.

The group is moving into a newly purchased building on Conklin Avenue but needs $1.2 million to pay for the renovations and equipment.

The animal shelter kicked off a capital campaign this week.

The group, which currently operates its shelter on Jackson Street in Binghamton has long struggled with space issues as it cares for dozens of dogs and cats.  Officials say there are currently 60 cats and 25 dogs on a waiting list needing care.

The BC Humane Society also suffered a devastating blow to its resources and finances when the shelter was flooded in 2011, forcing it to move animals to a temporary care facility at a Chenango Forks Veterinarian’s property.

 

Under the expansion, the group is expected to not only have more room for displaced companion animals, but plans to also begin offering spay and neuter services and classes.

 

For information on how to help the BC Humane Society, call (607)724-3709.
