Helping Paws no-kill animal shelter moves from Crystal Lake to a new facility in Woodstock.
Posted: January 04, 2007, 5 a.m. EST
Helping Paws no-kill animal shelter has a new facility to house more than 100 cats and dogs. The new building in Woodstock, Ill., features two rooms to house the shelter’s cats and kittens that are available for adoption. In the new building, the cats will enjoy time out of their cages to roam free in the larger rooms.
The cats at Helping Paws animal shelter recently moved to a new facility.
The shelter’s new facility also features meet-and-greet rooms that allow prospective pet owners time to interact with a cat or dog. The facility’s medical area will eventually be used for surgeries. Helping Paws’ board president, Joanne Anderson, says that the shelter hopes to someday offer low-cost spay and neuter services to low-income families.
A resident cat room at the shelter is home to unadoptable cats that will stay at Helping Paws for the rest of their lives. About 25 cats call the shelter their permanent home.
