The Humane Society of Walton County has again rescheduled its official grand opening. This time it will be until spring. According to founder Miranda McWaters, there are still some things that they want to do to the facility before the grand opening.
“We want it to be perfect,” she said.
In the meantime, however, dogs and cats are passing through there to their forever homes in short order with many happy “tails” to share.
You can click on this link for the Facebook page that gives an update on pets that have found their forever home as well as ones that are still available for adoption or foster. At the link you also can find out how to contact HSWC if you have cats or kittens you know of that need to be TNR’d (Trap, Neuter, Release), if you want to join a volunteer crew or if you are just looking for other ways you can help.
Reschedule is due to potential for inclement weather
The Humane Society of Walton County has rescheduled its official Ribbon Cutting due to the potential for inclement weather tomorrow. It will now take place at 10 a.m. on Feb. 6, 2024.
The Human Society of Walton County has now been open to the public since a couple of days before Christmas. Since then, many dogs and cats have found their forever in loving homes outside of the facility. In between arriving at the HSWC, they have been able to become accustomed to the fact that life is looking so much brighter for them already. They have been cleaned, fed, walked and watered and shown some love by a group of volunteers who have stepped up to offer their time to help.
And now, the HSWC and ready to open up the facility to the community to see exactly what it is all about. Mark your calendars for Friday morning.
“We’re so excited to announce the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Humane Society of Walton County! Join us Friday, January 12th at 10 a.m. to show your support for this amazing new business, meet the staff, and love on some sweet fur babies,” the HSWC announced on its Facebook page.
If you haven’t yet seen the facility, or maybe want to see if there is a good fit for one of the pets to find a permanent home in your home, this is a good time to do so.
The HSWC is located at 1520 Highway 138, Monroe. You can get a first look at the facility, see the adoptable pets already in there, and find out how you can help contribute to a better life for Walton County’s four-footed residents.
