CARUTHERSVILLE, MO (KFVS) - The Caruthersville Humane Society has temporary stopped taking in animals while renovations are being made to the facilities.

According to the Caruthersville Humane Society president Karol Wilcox, they are in the process of making repairs and renovations to the Caruthersville building to prepare for the merge.

Wilcox said that the renovations are now at the point where the kennel room is ready for repairs.

“Because of the need to repair some kennels, both facilities are putting a temporary hold on intake of animals,” she said, “We hope this will last no longer than two weeks and we are asking residents to be patient with us.”

The facilities will continue to adopt available animals. Those adoption fees are waived until further notice, but adopters will have to meet regular adoption guidelines.

“Our goal is to rehome as many as we can during the renovations so we can move forward smoothly and merge,” Wilcox said, “We are shooting for mid February barring any complications at this time.”
