Saturday afternoon a group of people dedicated to helping those who cannot help themselves celebrated the grand opening of the Humane Society of Logan County shelter. While the shelter has been open for a while, this day the group enjoyed a chamber ribbon-cut, offered free food to guests and opened their doors for everyone to take a tour of the outstanding facility.

Major funding for this project has come from $200,000 from the charitable trust created under the last will and testament of Ethel D. Hoelscher, and the property at 1801 E. Lincoln Parkway was given by the Gene Burwell family. An additional $200,000 was raised through fundraisers, memorials and donations. The additional $200,000 would not have been possible without the generous support of the citizens of Logan County and the thousands of hours that have been logged by the committed volunteers of the organization.

The expression on Ellen Burbage's face (pictured in blue) says it all.

A poster board inside the entryway highlights some of the cats that are currently available for adoption.



Dogs are also well-represented in the entryway ...

... as these lovable figures put a smile on everyone's face.


Bill and Jean Gossett check out the facility ...

... as do dozens of others.



What are they looking at?
