We're Building a New Animal Shelter!The Humane Society purchased land from the City of Geneseo in January, 2013. The land is located east of the current shelter, and includes the dog park, the pavilion, and the land between the pavilion and the road to Cole Cabin. In March, 2013, a contract was awarded to Bob Johnson Construction of Geneseo to build a steel pole building on the site. The building is 50 'X 80' with a 30' X 40' attached storage garage. A contract was awarded to Specht Construction of Annawan to pour the concrete for the foundation and the floors. A contract was awarded to IEFM Consulting Engineers of Coal Valley to design a HVAC system that would be energy efficient. In October, 2013, a contract was awarded to DeDecker Plumbing and Heating in Atkinson for the plumbing, heating, ventilation and air conditioning. The building shell, drains, foundation, concrete floors, and radiant floor heating is completed.

The public capital campaign was launched on September 20, 2014, in conjunction with the dedication of the dog park, now named Prairie Paws Park. Naming sponsorships and special recognition levels are listed below. If you have any questions about the new shelter or would like to go on a tour, please contact Karen Russell at (309) 945-2916.
