Franklin County Humane Society one step closer to nearly $5 billion new facility

People at the franklin county humane society get nervous...because the shelter faces chronic flooding problems...putting people and animals at risk.

That's why the humane society wants to build a nearly five-million dollar facility in a new location.

As abc 36's monica harkins reports...tonight... the humane society took an important first step in the right direction to make that happen.

Ii barking the humane society is making some noise...as time continues to pass...and the animals in the shelter continue to face below average conditions.

At council meeting:"this is not a difficult decision.

Do the right thing please."

A unanimous vote yes.

From frankfort city commissioners opened the door on a seemlingly caged up opportunity...allow ing the humane society to lease a portion of city- owned land -- carpenter farm.

Sam marcus president of the society says the land is a win.

" yes, absolutely that's a step in the right direction."

The next step...and possibly more difficult step is getting the county and city to help pay for the project.

Marcus says it's only reasonable because they're contracted with both.

"they bring us animals directly and then we're obligated to take animals from the citizens of frankfort and franklin county so because of the fact that they fill up our shelter we feel like it's only fair to ask for a contribution of funding for the new facility," marcus says the contribution pie if you will...would be twenty five percent county, twenty five percent city and the shelter will offer up the other half.

"we're certainly going to do our part.

I don't know how many non-profits are willing to put up 2 and half million dollars toward a project."

"marcus says he's hopeful the city and the county will be able to come together on this project by october.

In frankfort, monica harkins, abc 36 news."
