Missouri Humane Society expands with new facility
MARYLAND HEIGHTS (AP) — The Humane Society of Missouri expanded its operations by opening two new specialized centers in the city of Maryland Heights.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that the society's Best Buddy Adoption Center and Animal Medical Center of Mid-America opened on Wednesday.
Missouri chapter President Kathy Warnick said that the two-level, 44,000-square-foot facility will provide a "wonderful" experience for pet adopters.
The facility features a new Integrated Pain Management Center and innovative animal housing all within welcoming architecture.
The facility will be able to accommodate more than 400 animals at a time, double the number of animals the previous facility could hold.
The $16 million facility was paid for by individual, foundation and corporate donations to the New Horizons Capital Campaign conducted by the Missouri chapter over the past four years.
