New Humane Society, new animal shelter, new $1.5M community campaign

Source: Based in Lafayette

With $6.5 million committed by Lafayette, West Lafayette and Tippecanoe County in a new animal shelter along Sagamore Parkway, the newly formed Humane Society for Greater Lafayette is looking to raise $1.5 million in a community campaign launched Thursday.

The plan is to build onto the former Cooperative Extension Service building at 3150 Sagamore Parkway S., converting the space into an animal shelter and animal control headquarters for the two cities and the county.
