February 17, 2020 – A portion of the Washington County Humane Society will be leveled today. The demolition is scheduled to start around 8:30 a.m. A backhoe can be seen from Highway 60 as it rests in front of the building. The structure was supposed to be taken down on Friday, February 14 however frigid temps postponed the event.

Phase III will occur in 2021 and involve remodeling of the welcome area, courtyard and in 2022 there will be a final phase involving a redesign of the small animal adoption ward.
