TOWN OF CLAY, N.Y. (WYSR-TV) – HumaneCNY will be closing its doors at their temporary location on Kinne Street in DeWitt Saturday as they prepare to move into a newly renovated space next month.
The shelter has been renovating their location on Taft Road in the Town of Clay since November 2018, but as the work nears completion, everything from food to kitty litter to dog crates will be heading to the newly renovated location in the coming weeks.
“We were in the temporary space for 13 months and in 13 months, we were able to adopt almost 500 animals out of this building that is 1,800 square feet. We are moving into a 10,000 square foot building and we are ecstatic at what we are going to be able to do in the new building for the animals in our community,” said HumaneCNY Executive Director, Christine McNeely.
The shelter is also looking to adopt all remaining animals before Saturday, including several puppies, kittens, and two cats.
“I don’t know if it’s more stressful for us or the animals but I’m looking forward to the new place and the future of HumaneCNY,” said Olivia Davoli.
The new space on Taft Road in the Town of Clay is getting a final coat of paint both inside and out and new equipment including cat cages are being delivered every day.
HumaneCNY will unveil the new kennel area and outdoor space at a grand re-opening September 29. The shelter will be up and running on a limited basis however starting in mid-August.
